CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Female Genital Cutting, Women's Health, and Development provides a
comprehensive understanding of the issue of femal genital mutiliation/cutting -
scope, challenges, opportunities, best practices, and how communities,
development agencies, and national governments can work together to eliminate
the practices on the ground. The World Bank is committed to assisting
governments in ending the practice of female genital cutting, as the practice
has direct, negative impact on the health and well-being of women around the
world. The recommendations set forth in this paper take advantage of the World
Bank's comparative advantage in dealing with governments. Continued silence
perpetuates the practice, thereby undermining women's productivity.
