12/16/2012 -- Sunday Express -- "End Vile Practice of Female Genital Mutilation" In the first of a series of top-level meetings in London, a group of ­senior police, government officials and experts – including Equality Now's Efua Dorkenoo – began work on tough new measures to crack down on FGM.

Female genital mutilation is child abuse – in all instances children experience confusion, guilt, fear and anxiety. The victim is silenced and any sense of entitlement to her natural sexuality is removed forever. --Efua Dorkenoo, Advocacy Director, FGM Program
