  • Who are the ‘drivers’ behind FGCS, according to Jafar – women or men?
  • How is FGM similar to FGCS?  What are the parallels?
  • Jafar points out that many people today seem to believe that because women in our society are allowed to wear less clothing, then it must mean that we have made more progress toward gender equality, at least when it comes to women’s bodies.  What does Jafar have to say about this belief?
  • Do you agree with Jafar that “less clothes” does not necessarily mean “more equality?”  Explain.
