Abstract: Somalia has the highest global prevalence (98%) of female circumcision (FC), and, despite a long history of abandonment efforts, it is not clear as to whether or not these programmes have changed people’s positive attitudes toward the practice, this paper explores the attitudes of Somalis living in Hargeisa and Galkayo districts to the practice of FC.
