Celebrating International Women's Day

On Monday, I attended an event to support the ending of violence against women at Glasgow's City Chambers. It provided a platform for various organisations to highlight their work to raise awareness of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). 

Leaflet available at

UNICEF are campaigning to stop violence against children.

A video about FMG called Sara's story was shown to promote understanding.  This has been developed by the Women's Support Project. 

I give my support to efforts to challenge FGM and child marriage. Both are against the law in Scotland and we need to ensure that services are accessible to assist the communities affected.
