@chegroovin Will 2 Change is a wonderful, challenging, important book. I quote it in a recent essay. I am sure that notions of sexual conquest being admirable are ingrained in many male subcultures. I was trying to see how generalizable that was among my followers as it wasn't my experience      источник

Civilizing Women book cover
Civilizing Women
British Crusades in Colonial Sudan
Janice Boddy - 2007-07-22
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the complex relationship between British colonial officers and Muslim Sudanese in Civilizing Women. Janice Boddy focuses on the efforts to end female circumcision in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan from 1920-1946, revealing how this was tied to other colonial concerns such as slavery and cotton farming. This engaging book delves into the nuanced process of colonizing selfhood and the role of British women in it. Boddy also discusses the fraught relations between political officers, missionaries, and African nationalists. A cautionary tale for those considering contemporary interventions.
Brian Earp
This book by Janice Boddy is so deeply researched, sensitive, wise, and magisterial. Anyone interested in so-called Pharaonic circumcision (what Egyptians, as I understand, call Sudanese circumcision as it’s not so common in Egypt) should read it, along w. Ellen Gruenbaum’s work      источник
