Notes on The War on Women by Sue Lloyd Roberts

In Chapter 1 of The War on Women you can read a soundly researched account of FGM in the Gambia. Sue Lloyd Roberts wrote this with interviews from cutters and with the country’s most senior Imam. (I particularly recommend you read the latter in her own words.) She expands on her findings with shocking research figures which include facts concerning long-term conditions immigrant women to the UK are suffering from. I believe all westerners should be made aware of this in order to support the law which forbids parents from sending girls back to the Gambia for FGM. Report if you suspect it.
