Genital Cutting and Transnational Sisterhood: Disputing U.S. Polemics

by Stanlie M James & Claire C Robertson - £17.99  University of Illinois Press (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780252072734 | ISBN 10: 0252072731

Genital Cutting and Transnational Sisterhood is a much-needed response to the ethnocentric and arrogant Western perceptions surrounding female genital cutting (FGC), often referred to as either female genital mutilation or female circumcision, but which includes a variety of practices of varying history, severity, geographical distribution and consequences.
 
In five provocative essays, the contributors to this timely volume challenge representations of FGC through a range of perspectives: history, human rights, law, missionary feminism, cultural relativism, anthropology, and the intersex movement.
