Discussion on Female Circumcision

Posted by Cara Solomon

This past spring, we hosted a panel on the ethics and human rights considerations involved in female circumcision.  A recent article by Arta Lahiji, MD, MPH, and a 2011 student fellow with the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics, reviews the discussion here.

Panelists at the event included: Dena Davis, of Cleveland-Marshall College of Law; Hope Lewis, of Northeastern University School of Law; Nawal Nour, of the Global Ob/Gyn Health Center at Brigham and Womens Hospital Boston; and Sarah Waldeck, of Seton Hall Law.

Mindy Roseman, our Academic Director, and Glenn Cohen, Co-Director of the Petrie-Flom Center, moderated the event.
