The years since GA started, in 2008, have seen a growing appreciation of the suffering and injustice endured by children as a rssult of genital cutting and modification. The board of G.A. is very grateful that Clare Chambers has decided to support our work and join our trustee board.
Clare Chambers is University Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, where she is also a Fellow of Jesus College. She is the author of Sex, Culture, and Justice: The Limits of Choice (Penn State University Press, 2008) and, with Phil Parvin, Teach Yourself Political Philosophy: A Complete Introduction (Hodder, 2012). She has also written numerous articles and chapters on feminist and liberal political philosophy. Her next book, Against Marriage: An Egalitarian Defence of the Marriage-Free State, will be published by Oxford University Press in 2017.
“Children everywhere should be protected against unnecessary genital cutting and modification. I have long been committed to this cause and I was deeply moved by the dedication of those I met at the 2016 Symposium at Keele University. I am delighted to be joining the Board of Genital Autonomy and look forward to supporting their vital work.”
