The local government has taken a stance on female genital mutilation. They have introduced legislation that allows for protection orders to save girls at risk and women who have experienced female genital mutilation. I think it is important as social workers we make ourselves aware of the services to help safeguard women and girls from harmful practices.
Have any of you ever worked with victims of female genital mutilation or honour based violence?
I would love to hear about the support your agencies offer or the services you’ve accessed that really help.
please share as I would like to get a dialogue going about how social workers as supporting women and girls around these issues.
