1993 Large Softcover. 373 pp. 9 x 7. A collaboration by Alice Walker, the author of The Color Purple, and British filmmaker Pratibha Parmar, examining female genital mutilation in African culture. 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.
