Description - Genital Cutting and Transnational Sisterhood by Stanlie M. James

Genital Cutting and Transnational Sisterhood is a much-needed response to the ethnocentric and arrogant Western perceptions surrounding female genital cutting (FGC), often referred to as either female genital mutilation or female circumcision, but which includes a variety of practices of varying history, severity, geographical distribution and consequences. In five provocative essays, the contributors to this timely volume challenge representations of FGC through a range of perspectives: history, human rights, law, missionary feminism, cultural relativism, anthropology, and the intersex movement. Stanlie M. James is chair of the Afro-American Studies Department and associate professor of African American studies and women's studies at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She is a coeditor of Theorizing Black Feminisms. Claire C. Robertson is professor of history and women's studies at the Ohio State University and the author of Trouble Showed the Way: Women, Men, and Trade in the Nairobi Area, 1890-1990 and other books.
