This is the first book by a Sudanese woman to deal in scholarly fashion with female circumcision and infibulation in Sudan. Based on a large-scale statistical survey, Dr. El Dareer presents detailed evidence as to the extent of the practice. She particularly focuses on the health problems resulting from the custom, and gives a fascinating account of the very varied attitudes which Sudanese women and men have towards it.
