“‘Cut Flowers’ and Aneeta Prem’s previous book, ‘But it’s not Fair’, together provide a vital resource for children, young people and professionals on tackling these serious child abuse practices.
The story of the parallel lives of two young girls’ summer holiday experiences where one is blighted by the real threat of FGM in the name of ‘culture’ and ‘tradition’ brilliantly underlines why all young girls must be safeguarded from violence and abuse. Schools have an important role in educating children, young people and staff on the damaging effects of FGM. The information and lesson plans appended to the book will provide a much needed resource for teachers and other professionals to support their work in educating against this brutal crime.”
