Description:

In “Possessing the Secret of Joy” Alice Walker brought the issue of female genital mutilation, a practice that affects 100 million women, to the attention of the world. Simultaneously, she was working on a TV documentary with British film maker Pratibha Parmar, to further expose the horrors of the process. This book is the story of the making of that film, a journey from California to England and Africa, and a journey of self-discovery.
