The Cruel Cut: a documentary screening on FGM/C

Room 4A/B Cardiff SU • Thu 07 March 2019 18:00-20:00

Flim screening of the Cruel Cut- a documentary about the campaign to tackle Female Genital Mutilation in the UK.

The Cruel Cut is a Channel 4 documentary about female genital mutilation in the UK. FGM is when a girl’s genitals are either partially or totally removed for non-medical reasons. Leyla Hussein, a campaigner and mother, was cut when she was seven years old. Four women held her down, while a fifth cut her. Leyla screamed for her mother to help her, before passing out. There are 66,000 women and girls living with the terrible consequences of FGM in Britain. And with an estimated 24,000 girls at risk of mutilation today, Leyla sets out on a campaign to eradicate FGM in the UK. #stopFGM.
