Cross Cultural Health Perspectives BHS414 Module 2 Case Based Study Dr. Angela Hegamin Written By: 09 JAN 2006 Nawal is a 35-year-old married woman struggling with a decision regarding her 13-year-old daughter. Nawal was born and raised in the Sudan where, in most parts, female circumcision is culturally accepted and considered a normal part of growing up. However, for the past five years, Nawal has lived in the United States and is hesitant, despite the pressures from her family, to have the procedure preformed on her daughter. There are three types of female circumcisions, which can very from culture to culture. “In Sudan, Type 1, known as the Sunna, generally entails only removal of the tip of the prepuce. Type 2 is referred to as Matwasat, and includes removal of the clitoris along with part or all of the labia minora. Type 3, the Pharaonic, which is the most severe form, involves removal of most or all of the external genitalia.” (Islam and Uddin)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
