Documentary Video: Sterilization of Roma Women

May 2003
Slovakia’s Roma population has always had a difficult life. Regarded as culturally inferior, they are discriminated against at all levels. Now evidence suggests they are being sterilised against their will. Ingrid Ginova was just 16 when doctors sterilised her without her knowledge. When she publicised her plight, police threatened to imprison her. Her story gives added weight to a new report stating that Romany women have been sterilised for decades without their consent.

Produced by SBS/Dateline
Distributed by Journeyman Pictures
