The case of female genital cutting

In this assignment, you will reflect on the contentious issue of female genital cutting, and the different ways in which it is constructed. Isn’t it a clear violation of women’s human rights? Might it be productive to consider this practice along with other rites of passage that could have dangerous outcomes? To what extent do we apply cultural relativism in this case? What to write about? - Read the hand-out distributed in class to understand the debate (see ‘supplemental readings’ below if you would like to learn more) - Write an essay using the ‘food for thought’ prompts Supplemental readings: I am including a link to the debate that ensued after The Atlantic published an interview with anthropologist Bettina Shell-Duncan on her field research on female genital cutting. You can also visit UN’s website to learn more about its official position.
