A new website has been launched today by teenagers to help educate other young people
about Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and what steps they can take to stop it.
From July-September this year across London 758 newly reported incidences of FGM were discovered by healthcare professionals. To help people spot the signs of abuse and help others they think may be at risk Everybody’s Business – run by young people for young people – offers videos and interactive guides to help others find out about a practice which can have serious consequences for women and girls affected.
The website was set-up by Rosa as part of its 6-year initiative across the UK, and is one of 17 community projects funded by a government grant which aims to end FGM and ‘honour’ based violence by creating a network of community champions.
