Abstract:

A look at the social & economic conditions of women in Eritrea, as seen through the lives of three Eritrean women. Leyla Adem struggles with deciding whether to circumcise her youngest daughter, a dangerous and illegal practice that is still widely observed in rural areas. Amina Ased Awed tries to decide whether to give birth in the local hospital, where medical personnel would not restitch her artificially-narrowed labia afterward (as traditional midwives would). Howa Mahmud Haj attempts to support her family after her husband abandons her, which indirectly requires her to violate several economic and social conventions.
