Poligamy, clitoridectomy and sewing up the vagina (infibulation) are the weapons used by men to control millions of women. In this book, Awa Thiam, a black African feminist, lets some of the most oppressed women in the world speak for themselves. She makes plain that these practices are not remote and "barbaric", but part of a pattern of universal violence from men towards women. The answer to the problem lies in direct political action, but action linked to international feminism.
