The dramatic, spiritual memoir of a prominent Muslim woman working to empower women and girls across the world - for fans of Malala Yousafzai and Azar Nafisi. Raised in a progressive Muslim family in the shadows of the Himalayan mountains, where she attended a Catholic girls' school, Daisy experienced culture shock when her family sent her to the States to attend high school in a mostly Jewish Long Island suburb. Ambitious and talented, she quickly climbed the corporate ladder after college as an architectural designer in New York City. Though she loved the freedom that came with being a career woman, she felt that something was missing from her life. One day a friend suggested that she visit a Sufi mosque in Tribeca. To her surprise, she discovered a home there, eventually marrying the mosque's imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, and finding herself, as his wife, at the center of a community in which women turned to her for advice. Guided by her faith, she embraced her role as a women's advocate and has devised innovative ways to help end child marriage, fight against genital mutilation, and, most recently, educate young Muslims to resist the false promises of ISIS recruiters. Born with Wings is a powerful, moving, and eye-opening account of Daisy Khan's inspiring journey - of her self-actualization and her success in opening doors for other Muslim women and building bridges between cultures. It powerfully demonstrates what one woman can do - with faith, love, and resilience. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daisy Khan.

This book deals with reasons for the persistence of the practice of female genital cutting (FGC) among the Kurya in Tanzania. The author identifies contradictory understandings of meanings regarding the practice among government representatives, activists who attempt to curb it, and local people involved in traditional social institutions closely linked up with the practice. Existing intervention programmes lack the involvement of local community members in planning and implementation. The book concludes that local beliefs that are embedded in traditional discourse still have a strong influence on fostering the practice, although some elements of change are currently observed. It recommends intervention programmes based on in-depth cultural knowledge, and concludes that addressing the problem in its local context is crucial for efforts directed at stopping the practice.
This book examines female genital mutilation (FGM) in Africa and the global movement committed to eliminate the practice. The international community, guided by concerned UN organizations and large donor groups, defines FGM as a violation of human rights and follows a uniform goal to completely eliminate all forms of FGM. By coordinating actions from the international to the local level, any alternatives raised by cultural relativists are strictly excluded. However, less attention is focused on the effectiveness of messages that are being introduced to FGM-practicing communities. In particular, introducing the concept of human rights has largely failed to succeed. The author argues that the abstractness of the concept needs to be tailored to the realities and experiences of FGM-practicing communities. Implementation of theories and strategies that take a participatory approach are suggested in order to facilitate community-based and community-led solutions to FGM. Finally, the author suggests a decentralized model of behavior communication that permits greater flexibility of approaches to anti-FGM communication.
