The International Child Symbol

“The image of the International Child for Genital Autonomy was created shortly after the First International Symposium on Circumcision was held in Anaheim, California, in 1989, as our logo to protect all children – males, females, and intersex – from nontherapeutic genital alterations.

Without racial or religious prejudice, we were affirming this basic human right.

We recognized that, for the first time in history, we had brought the issue of genital alteration of infants and children to the forefront of discussion, and, during our three-day event, genital cutting was addressed by experts from many disciplines, including history, religion, geography, medicine, sociology, anthropology, psychology, law, and ethics.

Since then, there have been ten more symposia and, with our evolution, the name of our symposia changed to the International Symposia on Circumcision, Genital Integrity, and Human Rights.

The International Child for Genital Autonomy signifies protection of the genital integrity rights and self-determination of every child and now is the emblem of and for Genital Autonomy.”
