This book will cover the controversial cultural practice that is taking place even in the Western world where the practice is illegal.
It will explain the different types of FGM and give an overview of the rite of passage and why it is practised by different cultures with different religious persuasions.
In many cases the procedure is performed by medically untrained women using unsterilised equipment and so this book will cover the complications and health risks involved.
There will also be personal stories included from women who have had this mutilation done to them, and the effect it has had on their lives.
