We Need To Discuss FGM



Hello Everyone,

How are you all? This is normally the part where I open with some sort of sarcastic joke or otherwise witty remark, but today, I've got my serious girl pants on because the subject I'm about to raise isn't a humorous one but rather a one of shock, disbelief and overwhelming sadness.

Review


If you watch my YouTube channel, you'll have probably seen me haul this book recently, Cut - One Woman's Fight Against FGM in Britain Today and it made for shocking reading.

Don't be put off by the 'Britain' part if you're from elsewhere, this is just a broader look at the situation in the UK but is as relevant to any country that experiences migration and it is important to read if you're from a country that has culturally practiced FGM.

If you're not aware of what FGM actually means, it stands for Female Genital Mutilation, to sum it up in a nutshell, someone gets a razor or a knife etc and cuts off parts of your vagina, usually when you are a child and you literally have no say about this, usually the clitoris is removed and sometimes the labia too (the 'lips' if you will) then you might be sewn shut using the bloody mess that is left behind leaving just a tiny opening for urine or menstrual blood to escape from. This is more often than not, completed whilst the woman or girl is fully awake with no anesthetic and I don't even think I need to tell you the obvious tragic consequences such as deaths after undergoing such a procedure.

Female Genital Mutilation

Hibo Wardere was given Type 3 at just 6 years old, whilst her story is harrowing and upsetting it is also one of hope and extreme courage. Born and raised in Somalia, Hibo came to London to escape war and made herself a successful life in the UK, with the help of her supportive husband she has saved her own daughters from such a violent fate and now she is working to save the daughters of others through education.

I can't express enough just how much you need to read this book, I was unable to put this down and I'm so glad I learned more about FGM and Hibo Wardere, if you're looking for something raw, honest, inspiring and educational, Cut is one for you.

Let me know your thoughts,

Rosy xx

  1. Yes this is a very important topic and sad that is it still being done today. It is going to be 2017 and you would think that things like this no longer occur but they do. Excellent of you to post this book and bring it to the attention of your readers. And so glad Hibo Wardere could write this book and help others.

  2. Oh my gosh, Rosy.
    I had not heard of this at all (and I'm old). There certainly are some crazy people out there. I'm definitely putting this on my book club list, as it will bring about much discussion!

  5. It's so upsetting that this happens to women around the world. I cannot imagine the pain and agony that this has caused on the lives of the women that have experienced it. It's seriously disturbing. I will definitely pick this book up to learn more - because even though I live in a Country where (I'm sure it still happens) but very rarely, it's important to know.

  70. Hey, I am not sure if it is the same person but lately I had a chance to watch a documentary about FGM in Britain. I was always aware that this happens but somehow never really considered that people in Britain, who often consider themselves part of community still willingly hurt their girls. It is time to talk about human rights because deciding for someone else if they should have e.g. clitoris or not obviously is not giving young females any rights to decide.

  93. I remember reading about FGM when I was really young (probably about 11) & I thought it was a frightening horror story but unfortunately it’s still a big problem. I can’t even imagine what those girls go through. Thank you for sharing the message. Something more definitely needs to be done about it!

  96. To think that such practices exist in 2016... sometimes I don't understand in what world I'm living in.

  101. This is so horrible, and something that should be more wideley talked about. It's great that Hibo is taking steps to speak out and bring awareness to this issue in the UK.

  102. I was trying to finish a post on feminism and was just reading about fgm. It's so terrible. This is something that should definitely be more talked about. We need to find a way to eradicate it.
    Thank you so much for sharing the book.

  104. This is such an important topic, and one that so badly needs to be addressed. I hope for awareness of these issues truly gets to the forefront of the global priority list.

  106. It sounds like a really distressing book. It's shocking to me that things like this still exist. For all of the wonderful things we have in the world, there are a lot of negative things hanging on that should have been consigned to history decades ago! :(

  107. This sounds great :)

  109. This is such an important topic,, it's horrific that it actually happens at all. I think most people only think that it can happen in Africa but sadly it not only there. Great post to raise awareness about it. This sounds like a riveting read.

  111. The fact that such a barbaric act still occurs in 2016 is very disturbing. Nice of you to bring attention and hopefully a stop to it. I'll get the book.

  114. I have been aware of this issue for several decades and unfortunately it is steeped in tradition in certain parts of the world even though the procedure is unnecessary and harmful.
