FGM: The continual 

  
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), likewise known as Female Genital Cutting (FGC) is an illegal and punishable by law. 

FGM is a torture to the female as it is widely depicted to destroy womanly dignity of the person cut. There are four types. The women are permanently disfigured irrespective of the minimisations of the cutting at any of these stages. 

Today, the public focus is women and girls fleeing wars in their nations. Nevertheless, there is another kind of female refugees. 

While some are fleeing as results of persecution of all sorts, some females are running away from the being mutilated. 

Feminists’ debates are divided over this topic. Despite strong opposition to FGM practices within several European sectors, many argue about the need to respect the customary pattern of ethnic groups involving in FGM. 

What is a crime then? The FGM practices or the persistence of it?
