"For anyone seeking to understand FGM and the controversy surrounding it, for anyone looking for ways to act against FGM, this book is an excellent guide... By learning about the cultural contexts of those practices categorized as FGM, Western feminists can better choose how to be helpful to African women's projects of eradication. And by learning more about the historical and contemporary practices of genital mutilation in our own societies, feminists can better collaborate with African women, recognizing commonalities while respecting differences." -- Judith Van Allen, Women's Review of Books
