Tackling FGM: The Ruby Project

Check out the latest Equally Safe blog by Hanna Jedh, Independent Sexual Violence Advocate with the Ruby Project, Glasgow Rape Crisis Centre.

 "In 2015, the Ruby Project worked with women from 14 different countries where FGM is prevalent. Some of these survivors needed support specifically for trauma as a result of FGM, while many others disclosed recovering from multiple traumas of which FGM was only one part. Several women were fighting to stay in the UK in order to protect their daughters from FGM. Almost every survivor from these countries knew of a girl who had died as a result of an FGM procedure."
