9780813540269: Transcultural Bodies: Female Genital Cutting in Global Context
Review:

"This volume of essays by some of the most knowledgeable experts in the world takes us a huge step beyond the global activist and first-world media (mis-)representations of FGM into moral complexities, alternative beliefs about gender and beauty, and local political realities in areas of Africa where genital surgeries are commonplace for both men and women and are highly valued by both sexes." - Richard A. Shweder, author of Why Do Men Barbecue?: Recipes for Cultural Psychology"

From the Publisher:

Female "circumcision" or, more precisely, female genital cutting (FGC), remains an important cultural practice in many African countries, often serving as a coming-of-age ritual. It is also a practice that has generated international dispute and continues to be at the center of debates over women's rights, the limits of cultural pluralism, the balance of power between local cultures, international human rights, and feminist activism. In our increasingly globalized world, these practices have also begun immigrating to other nations, where transnational complexities vex debates about how to resolve the issue. Bringing together thirteen essays, "Transcultural Bodies" provides an ethnographically rich exploration of FGC among African diasporas in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Australia. The contributors analyze changes in ideologies of gender and sexuality in immigrant communities, the frequent marginalization of African women's voices in debates over FGC, and controversies over legislation restricting the practice in immigrant populations.
