Special £5 Offer On Hilary Burrage’s ‘FEMALE MUTILATION’ Book

June 1, 2018

New Holland Publishers have agreed a Special Offer on my book, FEMALE MUTILATION: The truth behind the horrifying global practice of female genital mutilation.
The book has over 70 personal contributions from survivors and #EndFGM campaigners in 24 countries across 5 continents, and has been honoured with a Global Woman P.E.A.C.E. Foundation Award. It demonstrates very clearly that FGM beliefs and practices vary hugely around the globe, but always the underlying theme is patriarchy incarnate.  You can review selected content   here.

Further information about the book and its many distinguished contributors, and reviews of Female Mutilation, can be read in this post.

The special offer price – available to individuals, organisations and book sellers – is £5.00 inc. P&P in the UK or Europe, and £9.00 inc. P&P for the rest of the world. (Large orders may be negotiated re Postage & Packing etc.)

To obtain copies call the distributors (GBS) on UK: 044 [0]1206 255777 or contact them by email via

@FemaleMutlnBook                                                                  Female Mutilation Worldwide website (details of contributor contacts etc)

[NB The Inter-African Committee on Traditional Practices Affecting the Health of Women and Children, which has a primary focus on FGM, is clear that in formal discourse any term other than ‘mutilation’ concedes damagingly to the cultural relativists – though the terms employed may of necessity vary in informal discussion with those who by tradition use alternative vocabulary. See the Feminist Statement on the Naming and Abolition of Female Genital Mutilation,  The Bamako Declaration: Female Genital Mutilation Terminology and the debate about Anthr/Apologists on this website.]


This article concerns approaches to the eradication specifically of FGM.  I am also categorically opposed to MGM, but that is not the focus of this particular piece.

Anyone wishing to offer additional comment on more general considerations around infant and juvenile genital mutilation is asked please to do so via these relevant dedicated threads.

Discussion of the general issues re M/FGM will not be published unless they are posted on these dedicated pages. Thanks.
