Female Genital Cutting: A community based approach to behaviour change.


Amina Memon

The goal of this review is to consider some contemporary literature on what is commonly referred to as Female Genital Mutilation/ Cutting (FGM/C) with the goal of looking at the discourse, attitudes and beliefs around this practice, its prevalence in the UK today and the approaches to effecting change. The importance of cultural awareness and understanding together with the involvement of community participants and champions will be highlighted. Drawing upon the work of Hernlund & Shell-Duncan, (2007) it will be argued that theoretical models of behavioral change will aid our understanding of why and how interventions cause change.
This review was written to coincide with the publication of a community based intervention to raise awareness about FGM in the Somali community in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets: ‘ Hear our Voices’ -Women’s Health and Family Services http://www.whfs.org.uk/ (henceforth referred to as the WHFS, 2014 report)
