Summary
There is growing international interest in Female Genital Mutilation. This is partly due to the exposure of the subject by human rights activists and organizations and partly due to the emergence of the practice in the West. Given that Female Genital Mutilation has a negative effect on both the physical and psychological health of millions of women, not just in Africa but also in Europe, North America and other parts of the world, what must be done to eradicate this practice? What are the lessons to be learned from past experience of work in this area? How can international interest be guided towards positive change?
