Virginity tests in UK

"Newly discovered documents indicate that the British government concealed how often it administered so-called "virginity tests" to female immigrants hoping to enter the country in the 1970s on marriage visas.
The documents, unearthed by legal researchers Marinella Marmo and Evan Smith from Australia's Flinders University, showed that the tests – meant to prove that women coming into Britain to marry were virgins – had been administered more than 80 times."
