What is FGM? Prevention, survival and support
Oxford Against Cutting (OAC) is committed to working to help prevent female genital mutilation and honour-based abuse (HBA) of girls and women living in the Thames Valley. Female Genital Mutilation (or FGM, sunna, or female circumcision) is when female genital organs are cut or injured for non-medical reasons. It has no health benefits and can be very harmful; it is also illegal in the United Kingdom. In this presentation, OAC will share their expertise in supporting people who have experienced FGM and discuss support for survivors. Over 3,500 teachers, students and other professionals participated in their workshops across the Thames Valley during the last 3 years.
Please note: This talk will include discussion of distressing practices. If you have any questions about the content, you are welcome to email the organiser in advance.
