The African country of Sudan is winning an old battle for its women: against female genital mutilation (FGM). On April 22, 2020, the country;s transitional government passed a law criminalising the practice with a prison term of up to three years and a fine.Though the law is still to be approved by Sundan ''s sovereign council, UNICEF has already welcomed the decision and vowed to support it. The law, considered a huge victory of female rights in the country, is another step for Sudan from a dictatorial to a democratic form of government.

The British government is robust in condemning the violence inflicted on women and girls across Africa, the Middle East and Asia, where female genital mutilation (FGM) is practised. But the claim that it takes a zero tolerance approach to all types of FGM is open to challenge. The NHS puts some children who identify as transgender on a medical pathway that can ultimately lead to sex reassignment surgery, which of course necessitates the mutilation of their genitalia. FGM was made illegal in Britain in 1985. Since then, successive governments have tightened the law to give ever more protection to women and girls, most recently in the 2015 Serious Crime Act. This included a new offence of failing to protect a girl under 16 from FGM, and the introduction of FGM Protection Orders. By March last year, 220 such orders had been issued, according to a House of Commons Briefing Paper.
