It was good to be invited today to attend a session of the RinGs (Research in Gender and Ethics: Building stronger health systems) meeting at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. The topic addressed by a diverse panel of experts was Gender and Ethics in Health System Research Policy and Practice. Discussion across a broad spectrum of […]

My invitation to speak at the Welsh Obstetrics and Gynaecology Society Meeting in Llandudno today was impetus enough to look again at issues around female genital mutilation (FGM) specifically from the perspectives of clinical medicine. I prepared a one-sheet briefing for those attending. The notes below are an annotated version of the thoughts I shared – […]

Just one year ago today my second book on female genital mutilation (FGM) was published. Female Mutilation: The truth behind the horrifying global practice of female genital mutilation offers more than 70 case studies from people in two dozen countries across five continents. Some narrators are FGM survivors, some community activists, and some professionals who bring […]

A question posted on Quora asks: Why does the USA call female circumcision ‘female genital mutilation’ when male circumcision is widespread in the country? Implicit here are also I think a number of other enquiries: are FGM and MGM (male genital mutilation / circumcision) ‘the same’? Is MGM acceptable because it’s still relatively widespread in the USA? […]

It’s obvious that ending violence against women and girls requires the involvement of us all, men and women alike. This is a piece on the subject which I’ve just published in Huffington Post, reminding readers that December has seen both the annual #16Days global initiative against gendered violence and, tragically, also in some parts of the […]

The FGM Summit in Washington DC was held over the first two days of December 2016, providing for the first time in the USA an opportunity for leading activists and strategists against female genital mutilation from across the world to meet and consider both progress and remaining challenges. I was pleased to be amongst those […]

I was delighted to be invited to talk at the Launch of the Greater Manchester FGM Strategy today (1 December). Most unfortunately however, the fates intervened and I’ve found myself travelling to Washington DC for the global FGM Summit the self-same day. But, my talk already written, I can at least share the ideas I […]

It’s White Ribbon Day, when the focus is on male violence against women and girls. In the words of White Ribbon UK : ‘This is not and never has been a “women’s issue”… We address men directly – so they understand the scale of the problem, and become part of the solution, alongside women.’ I’ve been invited […]

The incidence of female genital cosmetic surgery (FGCS, sometimes referred to as labiaplasty, although this is not the only procedure) is thought to be increasing, and this type of surgery continues to cause concern. Is it in fact licensed female genital mutilation (FGM), as some allege – in which case it is illegal? And is […]

My first book, Eradicating Female Genital Mutilation: A UK Perspective, was published one year ago today. It was at last available in bookshops and on the websites for all to access and read. I found the transition from ‘writer’ (of a manuscript) to ‘author’ (of a published book) quite daunting. For the past half decade […]
