Stop forced marriage and female genital mutilation

Every year tens of thousands of girls aged 11-13 from Muslim families are sent back to Bangladesh, Pakistan, Yemen and other countries to be raped.

Tens of thousands of young girls and women in the UK are subjected to female genital mutilation every year. Often held down by family members, often their own mothers and sisters who force them to be butchered.

Why does everyone turn a blind eye? Why has no one been prosecuted?

It is time to end forced marriage, rape by any other name, time to end female genital mutilation.

A petition against female genital mutilation has been launched on Avaaz, please sign.

    Thank you for addressing this very serious and neglected problem.

    Hi, Keith! Thank you for your action against sexual mutilation.

    You should make friend with your neighbour citizen, the singer songwriter Carly Bryant; look at the article I wrote about her:

    Thank you for your kind comments.

    Carly Bryant is not a neighbour, I am not sure why you think she is.

    But, I do actually know her, assuming we are talking about the same Carly Bryant.

    She is an excellent singer-song writer based in Brighton, or was.

    I have her album Twelve which as I write, just happens to be sat at the side of me.

    I have recently recommended to her that she uploads her music to bandcamp so more people can share and enjoy.
