Government launches FGM law consultation

The Prime Minister has launched a consultation seeking views on whether the introduction of a specific civil law measure could help protect potential victims of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). The consultation is led by the Ministry of Justice as part of wider cross-government work to eliminate the harmful and unacceptable practice of FGM.

The consultation will examine whether a specific civil law measure, similar to the Forced Marriage Protection Orders model, could prevent FGM and help protect women and girls at risk.

The consultation is open until midnight on Tuesday 19 August 2014. You can share your views online by submitting a response.
