this book is a facinating reed, depresing but when given lots of thought , theres not a lot of point fighting against it from happening, theyve been trying for the last 3 or 4 decades with very little progress!.

Valuable resource 20 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used Female Genital Mutilation... as a source in the composition of my graduate project. I found it to be a valuable resource in the search for domestic and international female circumcision eradication policy. It provides insight into the approaches being utilized by governments to cease this controversial practice.

FGM and American women 22 Nov 2002
By "garboy" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Nothing is quite so exciting as objectively watching human cultural prejudice. I believe the cutting of the genitals of both boys and girls is wrong, but look at the double standard women's groups have engendered. In the USA a family can be deported or denied admission if the circumcise a daughter. A medical doctor may be placed in prison if he performs a female circumcision, no matter how minor.
But the UGLY duplicity of Americans soon is seen.
After more than 30 years of no substantial medical benefit found for male circumcision, despite some shrill objections to ending it from a handful of agenda dedicated doctors, male circumcision remains alive and well. In fact, even funded by public money in many states.Yes many states actually pay tax dollars for this mutilation and insist a social disability if boys are not cut.
Why not say same for girls in FGM areas?

Although Moslems mutilate so do Jews, African tribes and at least half the... We indeed live as Einstein said, in a World of relativity!
