The Prime Minister has called to end the practice of female genital mutilation and forced marriages "once and for all", as new legislation is due to be unveiled by the Government at a summit in London.
All girls have the right to live free from violence and coercion, without being forced into marriage or the lifelong physical and psychological effects of female genital mutilation.
Abhorrent practices like these, no matter how deeply rooted in societies, violate the rights of girls and women across the world, including here in the UK.
