Politics and Society Ugandan woman becomes first person in the UK found guilty of Female Genital Mutilation

A 37-year-old Ugandan born woman has been convicted of mutilating her three-year-old daughter. She is the first person to be convicted, despite other female genital mutilation prosecutions having been brought to court in the UK. Those cases all ended in acquittals due to the lack of sufficient evidence.
