Descrizione prodotto


Having experienced firsthand the horror of female genital mutilation (FGM), Soraya Miré reveals the personal violation and immense challenges she overcame. This book is at once an intimate revelation, a testament to the empowerment of women, and an indictment of the violent global oppression of women and girls. This forthright narrative recounts what it means to grow up female in a traditional Somali family, where girls' and women's basic human rights are violated on a daily basis. Forced into an arranged marriage to an abusive older cousin, Miré was also witness to the instability of Somalia's political landscape—her father was a general in the military dictatorship of Siad Barre. In her journey to recover from the violence done to her, Miré realizes FGM is the ultimate child abuse, a ritual of mutilation handed down from mother to daughter and protected by the word “culture.” Despite the violations she endured, her words resonate with hope, humanity, and dignity. Her life story is truly one of inspiration and redemption.

5.0 su 5 stelle Everyone in America, Africa, and Europe Needs to Read this Book 12 agosto 2014
Di Jennifer Margulis, Ph.D. - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book stopped my heart. It kept me up until three in the morning. It changed my life.

It is the true life story of Soraya Miré, whose mother told her she was going to give her a "gift," when she was thirteen. From a big noisy family in Somalia, Soraya was so happy to be out alone shopping with her mom. She thought she was getting a new dress.

Instead her mother brought her to a doctor and helped hold her down while her clitorus was excised and her labia were sewn tightly together.

Her gift was to be genitally mutilated. The doctor showed her mother the excised clitoris. "Perfect," her mother said. And then it was fed to some dogs.

It's so sad and so painful. So many young women, and young girls, go through this horrific and debilitating process. And then poor Soraya had to experience, over and over again, the humiliation: with doctors in Europe who had never seen such mutilated genitalia, when she was raped by a Somali man who was angry at her for speaking out against cultural traditions (and thought what she needed was a good hard f**k), and when she wrote this brave, beautiful, devastating memoir detailing what happened to her.

Every American should read this book.

Every African should read this book.

Female genital mutilation has got to be stopped.

Thank you, Soraya Miré, for braving cultural disapproval, death threats, and rape to speak your truth and tell your story.

Thank you for making the documentary "Fire Eyes."

I am glad you are shouting from the rooftops about the oppression and mutilation of women and girls.

The time is now for this barbarism to end.

I enjoy reading about other cultures but this book did not flow well. It was written in a halting way, similar to someone who not an English language speaker trying to speak English. Maybe this was intentional but I didn't care for the style. Too distracting.

It's rare that I am transformed by reading a book. But after reading The Girl with Three Legs, I am knowledgeable about a huge part of the female world I knew nothing about. I admire the writer for all the sacrifices--and there were many--that she made to write this memoir. Surely this book has made a difference in the world of FGM.

This is an incredible story about Female Genital Mutilation told in first person by a woman who experienced the horror (still widely practiced) & now lives in the U.S. trying to raise awareness of the practice. As an adult she was able to undergo surgery to repair most (not all) of the damage. I highly recommend this book to both women & the men that love them.

5.0 su 5 stelle Story of survival in difficult situation 22 gennaio 2012
Di G. J. Hartley - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book is an intensely personal story that shows how Soraya chose to become a survivor, not just another victim, of genital cutting. Time and time again, she overcomes extremely difficult circumstances and dedicates her life to speaking out for bodily integrity. As a fellow survivor of genital mutilation, I applaud her passionate and tireless efforts.
