Show 968: Verwüstung by Scar sisters (Radio Helsinki)

  1. Verwüstung by Scar sisters (Antonia Manhartsberger and Constanza Mendoza) deals with structural violence in gynaecological surgery. Lack of transparency and education and backward research meet capital and individual interests. People whose reproductive possibilities are limited or who have no desire to have children are denied the right to self-determined sexuality, their reproductive organs can be removed recklessly. The often profound consequences are ignored in medical discourse, the psychological, physical and sexual after-effects are denied. Those affected feel anger, grief, powerlessness, loneliness, inner emptiness…. Verwüstung is a call for solidarity and self-empowerment. We are scar sisters, ready to fight. With our bodies and our words. Our weapon is openness. Scar sisters against patriarchy, scar sisters for radical empathy, scar sisters against physical and psychological violence at the examination chair. Scar sisters for unlimited satisfaction. Sisters in solidarity!
