THE EFFECTS OF FEMALE CIRCUMCISION ON THE WELL-BEING OF WOMEN
This book provides an insight into the infamous traditional female circumcision among the Keiyo of Kenya. Using purposive qualitative and quantitative data collected from women, men, civil servants and custodians of the Keiyo culture, the author argues that the practice could only stop if there was an alternative rite of passage. Consequently, Dr. Susan developed the concept called "Tumndo Ne Leel" (initiation without circumcision) which has since been positively received and adopted by the entire Kalenjin community as a replacement of female circumcision. The book is a very relevant resource for readers of Anthropology, Culture and Women Studies.
