Excising the Spirit: A Literary Analysis of Female Circumcision
Excising the Spirit: A Literary Analysis of Female Circumcision delves into one of the most complex issues of the modern era, female circumcision, or female genital mutilation. The issue of female circumcision catapulted into the mainstream after the publication of Alice Walker’s novel Possessing the Secret of Joy in 1992, and conversations began worldwide about how to end the ritual. Although Walker garnered much support for her depiction and denunciation of the ritual, many others decried her almost missionary-like stance on female circumcision, in which she uniformly condemned not only those who practiced the age-old ritual, but also those who performed the operations.
