The Genital Autonomy 2012 symposium, held in Helsinki, Finland from September 30-October 3, proved a stunning success. The caliber of presentations and of participants was extremely high. Steven Svoboda’s talk about recent legal developments in Germany was very well-received. Norway’s Ombudsman for Children, Dr. Anne Lindboe, inspired the entire symposium with her dedication and passion.

The symposium was co-presented by Finland’s Sexpo Foundation, UK’s Genital Autonomy organization, and NOCIRC. The next issue of the ARC Newsletter, due out in December, will have full details and numerous pictures of this groundbreaking event.
