The first week in July, in Geneva the UN Women’s Rights Committee (CEDAW) will examine intersex genital mutilations in Mexico, thanks to a collaborative NGO report from Mexico and Switzerland.
Mexican intersex visual artist Adiós Al Futuro (Proyecto Intersexual) will testify before the Committee, and will present and discuss her short film “Fragments. An Intersex experience” (Mexico 2018, 10 minutes, Spanish with English subtitles) – an unflinching look at IGM in Mexico, partly based on testimony from Mexican NGOs Brújula Intersexual and Vivir y Ser Intersex, co-rapporteurs to CEDAW.
With an introduction to intersex, IGM and human rights at the UN and on a global scale by Daniela Truffer and Markus Bauer, co-rapporteurs for StopIGM.org.
