We attended the biannual symposium held in Padua, Italy in September 2004, presenting a talk on genital integrity and gender equity. In Padua, we also participated on a legal panel with several other attorneys including ARC Board Member David Llewellyn and ARC Advisory Board Members John Geisheker and Zenas Baer. ARC had a table in the presenter’s room that was stocked with our T-shirts, business cards, articles, photos, newsletters, and other material. We also participated in media interviews during our time there. Padua may have been the most successful and impressive NOCIRC symposium we have ever attended. As usual, an ARC subgroup formed and held informal meetings during the symposium.
