Why? - The Truth About FGM


"Why?", which is available to download here, is a radio project by 14 young women from BME backgrounds about FGM - Female Genital Mutilation. FGM is sometimes also referred to as female circumcision, genital cutting, clitoridectomy, infibulation or sunna.

"Why?" explores the difficult subject of FGM through the eyes of a fictional young girl as she prepares to visit her grandparents one summer.

This programme is about Female Genital Mutilation and includes a description of the procedure. 

"Why?" was made in conjunction with Integrate Bristol and funded by Mediabox with help from South West Screen

At the end of a documentary such as this it is normal to advise people who have been affected by the issues contained within to call a helpline, the number of which is provided at the end of the broadcast.
We found there was no number we could offer listeners to call. We want this situation to change.

After you have listened to "Why" please sign our petition calling the UK government to provide a helpline for those affected by FGM to call.

You can also join our facebook group.

More information about FGM and the campaigns against it can be found on the Forward website.

I have always wondered why more women do not voice their opinion on this cruel cruel act. I believe that this site site with its radio project, has enough information to create awareness as well as generate strong emotions. It did for me. I urge every woman to sign the petition and to listen to the radio. Then pray to God to help these little girls if you are not in a position to do anything else.

Very informative and moving. I've already signed the petition.

Joe Daniels said...

The Sunday Times exclusive on female genital mutilation in the UK says there are 100,000 survivors here, and further claims that police do not investigate claims for fear of "inflaming racial tensions".

The investigation uncovered three perpetrators and enablers, whose first names are Mohammed, Alli and Omar [Sheikh Mohammed]...were they missing something about the communities from which FGM in the UK arises, or were they leaving us to join the dots?
