The book “In the Name of Tradition” focuses on the practice of female genital mutilation in Iran. Kameel Ahmady has spent several years working in humanitarian NGOs in Europe and Africa. It was during missions in Somalia, Egypt, Kenya and Sudan that he discovered excision. Having a vague memory of having heard about clitoris cutting as a child, he decides to look into the matter in his own community in Iran. This book is the result of research conducted between 2005 and 2015.
