“Articulo 6: narratives of gender, strength and politics” is an activist design project that aims to raise awareness about the case of forced sterilizations implemented during the government of Alberto Fujimori in Peru (1996-2000). 
The name of the project refers to the Sixth Article of the Second Chapter in the General Health Law of Peru, which establishes that “all persons have the right to choose freely the contraceptive method they prefer, and to receive appropriate information on the methods available and the risks”. 
The project explores different narratives related to the case of forced sterilizations, and uses the testimonies of the victims, fragments of political speeches, research documents and laws, as well as other textual and visual content, as raw materials for the project.
