Cultural Relativism and Sudan

In our class discussion or Janice Boddy’s article “Womb as Oasis,” we discussed a variety of topics, including female genital modification, cultural relativism, and some aspects of the current situation in regions of Sudan other than the specific area discussed by Boddy, in particular the ongoing humanitarian crisis and genocide occurring in the Darfur region.
