Description


This urgently important, unflinching, yet sensitive examination raises awareness about female genital cutting and provides essential information to help end its practice. According to a 2014 World Health Organization (WHO) fact sheet, more than 125 million girls and women alive today have been subjected to some form of genital cutting in twenty-nine countries in Africa and the Middle East. Census figures (2000) show that 228,000 women and girls in the United States have suffered from such procedures or are at future risk. This indispensible volume is packed with resources to support women's physical, psychological, and emotional health and healing.
