Female Cosmetic Genital Surgery Protest – Time Magazine Coverage

November 21st, 2008

Last weekend saw a demonstration against Cosmetic Genital Surgery led by the New View Campaign.

The event was well attended and attracted the attention of Time magazine who wrote this account of the issues raised by the protest.

This is definitely a story to watch. I’m hoping the demonstration will encourage journalists who’ve previously written gushy puff pieces that uncritically promote cosmetic genital surgery to start investigating this area. Who knows, it may even lead to more reflective writing that examine the evidence (or lack of) around the effectiveness of cosmetic genital surgery and the long-term impact of procedures.
