Abstract:

It is not possible, in Africa or elsewhere, to think about female genital mutilation (FGM) in the same way as 25 years ago. The growth in information and communication technologies (ICTs) has changed daily life and contributed to wider discussion of the topic - beliefs and practices are shifting. FGM is no longer the private concern only of women. It is a social and political issue that concerns both men and women. In this age of the internet, the task of abolishing FGM in Africa and constructing a tradition worthy of being passed on must include young people - whose way of living in this world is by being connected, by moving to and fro between the local and the global. This book reports on an innovative research and action project amongst girls and boys in Burkina Faso, Mali and Senegal to explore whether young people's use of ICTs could contribute to the abandonment of FGM. It shows how, in the era of globalized citizenship, a cross-sectional vision of development that puts young people and gender at the centre of development can produce real change.
