Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) has been a crime in the UK since 1985 (the Prohibition of Female Circumcision Act 1985) and has since been revised and renamed to reflect the nature of the crime (Female Genital Mutilation Act 2003). Yet 65,000 girls under the age of 13 remain at risk, without a successful prosecution in 30 years to protect these girls. The law is failing as it is currently enacted. This is because girls are often the daughters of those who organise the ceremony;...

The definition for HIV is human immune deficiency virus and AIDS is acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The difference between the two is that HIV is a virus while AIDS is a condition. A person can be infected with HIV by having unprotected sexual intercourse with an infected person.

The other day, I was watching a segment on the program NBC Nightly News in which a journalist was speaking with young Syrian children.

It fr...

So I’ve been doing a lot of reading around discrimination and prejudice in civil law at the minute and I have to say I feel very proud to be Scottish reading how well equipped it is.

Within the act are a number of ‘protected characteristics’ that are protected by the act from prejudiced behaviour. These include age, disabilit...

There are written sources, connections on social media, and endless television broadcasts. However, in more impoverished or politically restricted countries, journalism is restrained heavily. While speaking to the US Director of Reporters without Borders (or Reporters Sans Frontières - RSF), I learned a few things about the p...
