Stop forced marriage and female genital mutilation

May 23, 2012

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.
