Taking resolute action …


Taking resolute action against female genital mutilation would not be an act of prejudice against a minority. Quite the contrary, it would be consistent with the principle that all are equal before the law, and a demonstration that all are equally entitled to protection from cruelty and abuse, regardless of race or religion. Increasing numbers of women from the affected communities are making that case, refusing to have their own girls harmed and campaigning on behalf of others. Their brave voices would be immeasurably strengthened by a successful prosecution.
