Title: Changing a Harmful Social Convention: Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting
Available From: http://www.unicef-icdc.org/cgi-bin/unicef/Lunga.sql?ProductID=396
Description: This report, no. 12 of the Innocenti Digest Series available from UNICEF, "examines the prevalence of FGM/C and its social dynamics. It provides an explanation as to why the practice persists and of the elements necessary for its abandonment. It also takes stock of progress to date, identifies what works and what does not, and provides direction regarding the most successful strategies to promote the abandonment of FGM/C. Combining concrete field experience with tested academic theory, the Digest provides a practical tool to bring about positive change for girls and women." The full-text is available in PDF.
