Scotland was once considered a ‘soft-touch’ on female genital mutilation (FGM), failing to protect 23,979 affected residents. Oonagh O’Brien (Queen Margaret University) and Jerusalem Barnabas (Waverley Care) argue that things are changing. Greater steps are now being taken to prevent and mitigate FGM, and there are stories of hope and resilience to be told. Join our speakers to learn more about the positive change happening right here in Scotland.
