Research has shown that 140 million women and girls worldwide have been affected by Female genital mutilation (FGM) and of these, 66,000 were in the UK. It is estimated that up to 98,000 girls in the UK are at risk of being cut.
The World Health Organisation called for the elimination of FGM 30 years ago and the practice was made illegal in the UK in 1985 (with an update in 2003 that made it an offence to arrange to have it performed outside the UK on British Citizens), however there has not been one conviction.
Professor Hazel Barrett of Coventry University believes that this community-based approach is the best way to tackle the issue of FGM worldwide. Despite being a human rights abuse, the practice goes largely unreported amongst the diasporic communities in which it is practiced. Her unique approach to this issue includes working with practising communities to understand the barriers to preventing FGM and using the results of their research to try to change behaviours within communities.

The “featured” BlogTalkRadio program “Westchester On the Level with Narog and Aris” opens the Thursday, July 10, 2014th broadcast day at 10:00 a.m. EDT with our guest, Angela Peabody, author of the award-winning fictional novel When the Games Froze, and president of the Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation (http://www.GlobalWomanPEACEFoundation.org ). Her interview with host Hezi Aris will focus on her mission to eradicate gender-based violence, and speak to the practice of FGM, female genital mutilation. FGM is defined as any and all procedure that involve partial or total removal of the female genitals or other female genital organs for non-medical reasons. FGM is practiced as a cultural ritual by ethnic groups in 27 countries in sub-Saharan and Northeast Africa, and to a lesser degree in Asia, the Middle East, and within immigrant communities in Europe, the U.S., Canada and some parts of South America. It is typically conducted with or without anesthesia by a traditional circumciser using a razor or knife on girls from a few weeks old to puberty. It is a “tradition” outlawed by United Nations decree yet continues unabated to this day.
At 11:00 a.m. we pivot toward local, county, state, federal and international concerns in final hour.
