Daniela Truffer and Markus Bauer (

Presentation followed by Q&A / Discussion


Inters*x Genital Mutilations are serious human rights violations, criticised by the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, the Council of Europe, and several other human rights bodies. Nonetheless, IGMs are common in Ireland.

The international human rights NGO demands the prohibition of forced genital surgeries on children and adolescents with 'atypical' s*x anatomy and "Human Rights for Hermaphrodites too!"

Persons concerned shall later decide themselves, if they want surgeries or not, and if yes, which.

When: Tue 16 Sept 5.30 pm @ National Women's Council of Ireland (NWCI)
Where: 100 King Street North,Smithfield, Dublin 7
