Just spent a couple of hours will brilliant young BME women hoping to become political activists with @MuslimWomenUK finished the training to the news that Christopher Chope just blocked #fgm bill. If only one of the women I met today had his seat in parliament!— Jess Phillips (@jessphillips) February 8, 2019
Christopher Chope, the MP who objected to the upskirting bill has reached a new low. Today he blocked new, stricter laws to protect children from FGM. Absolutely appalling behaviour. He is a disgrace to parliament, his constituency and women & children everywhere.— Tom Brake MP (@thomasbrake) February 8, 2019
FGM is a social norm and if you've had it, you're more likely to think it's okay.
