The Challenge of Understanding Cultural Practices
Referencing the “Girl Summit: One Year On” document from this unit’s study, imagine you have accepted a position with UNICEF in the One Year On campaign to stop child early forced marriage (CEFM) and female genital mutilation (FGM). These practices have been part of the culture of many African nations for centuries. How do you explain to your social work colleagues you intend to work toward the eradication of a long-held cultural ceremony? On what basis do you choose to accept or reject others’ cultural behaviors? Since you are the immigrant to a different culture, explain how the African cultures might impact your cultural beliefs.
