For the first time ever, somebody in the UK has been prosecuted in a female genital mutilation case. A mother of African descent, living in London, has been found guilty after a story emerged of a three-year-old who had been mutilated. The case is historic, but it raises a lot of questions.
While one case might have been brought to justice, just how many more cases out there have not had any justice? And how exactly are we going to keep up with the more than 100,000 other cases that we are aware of in the UK?
How long is it going to take to get justice for all these young girls, and is it even possible?
