Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to write a twelve page book report and give a five minute presentation for one of my classes. This book gave me so much information, I stretched it out to sixteen pages and a twenty-five minute lecture! While the reading is definitely dry, it gives you any argument needed for female genital mutilation, both for and against the practice. I loved the setup. It was easy to skim through because it was broken into titled chapters that discussed points of issues entirely. There is minimal repetition in this book. The book was more geared towards abolishing it by giving detailed descriptions of rituals, personal experiences, diagrams, charts and graphs. This was definitely one of those "eye opener" books. I highly suggest it to anyone who wants to learn about the ritual. You may learn more than you ever imagined.
