Appropriating our bodies: machismo in the gynecologist, self-knowledge and pleasure

Women have lived outside our processes, without access to good information about the period and the menstrual cycle, the pelvic floor, fertility, childbirth or the puerperium. Thus, on the occasion of 8 anniversary of Micromachismos organize the event ‘Appropriating our bodies: machismo in the gynecologist, self-knowledge and pleasure’.

We want to show how important it is to know our bodies, the machismo that we sometimes experience in the gynecologist’s office and also the obstetric violence that we sometimes suffer during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum. It is important to know what we need to know to have a full and pleasurable sexual and reproductive life

We will speak with the Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, with whom we will talk about obstetric violence, sexual education, or access to contraception. We will also be accompanied by the journalist and writer Irene G. Pointauthor of ‘Lo que todos callan’, a collection of poems about the chiaroscuros of postpartum and motherhood and the physical and emotional consequences of obstetric violence, and Emilia DeSousa, feminist lawyer collaborator of ‘Malasmadres’ and ‘El parte es Nuestro’. To answer your questions, you will have at your disposal an office with the sexologist Sonia Encinas, who has just published his book ‘Wild Femininity’. The meeting will be presented and moderated by the journalist and Chief Gender Editor of, Ana Requena Aguilar.

the monologist Esther Gimeno will delight us at the opening of the act with his characteristic protest humor and the rap duo from Madrid The NO of girls They will close the event to the rhythm of their vindictive verses. Women sharing talent, experience and wisdom with all of us.
