Where are we going with discrimination?

Mexico’s legal system is still young and struggling to work out how to face the main issues in today’s society. One of them is discrimination. Today, “discrimination” is a strong word with cultural and legal consequences developing into other concepts like “micro-aggressions” or “privileges” which now have a very different meaning than the one they […]

Charlie Gard: child’s best interest and parental rights

My Overall Impression of CSW61

Overall, my experience attending the Commission on the Status of Women 61 was a positive one, despite the UN’s liberal agenda. If not for C-Fam, the issue of life would not be represented at all.
