They didn't expect illiterate, indigenous women would speak up.

The Quipu Project is an interactive documentary about women and men who were sterilised in Peru in the mid-1990s.  Many did not give full consent for it to happen.  Twenty years later, they are still seeking justice.

Using a specially-developed telephone line and web interface, we are working with some of the affected people, providing the framework for them to tell their story in their own words and bringing it to an international audience.The story emerges as the archive of testimonies and responses grows.
