Ethiopian culture is sophisticated. Their superstitions, social boundaries and customs are conducive to bonding the community. Large district gatherings are frequently arranged by elders so generational ties are maintained and traditional values are passed on. Practical crafts like traditional basket weaving are passed down generations to ensure firewood and food can be collected easily. Then there are other traditional practices so dangerous, they have been described as “devastating to health and social conditions”. Over the past decade, politicians, social workers and medical practitioners have particularly focused their efforts on combating one traditional practice, which they also consider a serious human rights abuse: female circumcision.
