Integrity Awareness Week
March 30th - April 2nd, 2007
Genital Cutting (HGC) is a culturally determined body mutilation that is forcibly
practiced on girls and boys around the world. There are an estimated 650 million
male and 100 million female victims worldwide. And, many intersexed children undergo
gender norming surgeries without giving consent to what their bodies will look like.
Millions of infants and children are at risk each year. Legislators, policy makers,
psychologists, physicians, nurses, and parents should be aware of the consequences of HGC.
The International Coalition for Genital Integrity (ICGI) in cooperation with the National Organization of Circumcision Resource Information Centers (NOCIRC) and Stop Infant Circumcision Society (SIC Society) sponsor Genital Integrity Awareness Week.
