There are two things most Americans know about “female genital mutilation” . . . that it happens in Africa, and that it is very very bad. In the context of stopping violence against women everywhere, Dr. Lisa Wade explores how Americans frame their opposition to “FGM” per…formed abroad and a logic full of loopholes for American genital cutting practices like cosmetic surgery. A must-see for those seeking an anti-colonial, transnational feminism and sociologists everywhere.
