Jesuit University In Mexico Offers "Unique" Forum

Michele Obama at Universidad Iberoamericana
I offered to organize a Forum of Intergenerational Discussion on S@xual Health at the private Jesuit University where I study Psychology: the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. The institution was interested in, and accepted to house, the Forum. After weeks of organization, it took place on Friday September 3rd, one day before the World S@xual Health Day. The Forum began with a message delivered by Patricia Uribe, Director of the National Center of Gender Equality and Reproductive Health. Later, Eusebio Rubio (Past President of the WAS) introduced the concepts of “s@xual health” and “s@xual rights,” Esther Corona (Executive Coordinator of the WAS) explained the global panorama of the World Sexual Health Day and Nadine talked about the activities in Mexico. The intergenerational discussion began with the tremendously smart and funny intervention of Guadalupe Loaeza, one of Mexico’s most popular writers. She told her “s@xual autobiography," which began decades ago, when she was expelled from a religious middle school after telling her classmates about “the way babies are made."
