Female Genital Mutilation

What is it

FGM is the mutilation of the external female genitalia for non-medical reasons. It is also sometimes known as female circumcision or ‘sunna’.FGM is carried out for cultural, religious and social reasons within families and communities.

The law and FGM

FGM is a serious criminal offence in the UK with a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison for anyone found guilty of the offence.

Even if someone is taken overseas for the mutilation, it is still a crime in the UK if the mutilation is done by a UK national or permanent UK resident. It is also a crime if a UK national or permanent resident assists or gets a non-UK national or permanent resident to carry out the acts overseas on a UK national or permanent resident
