What Else She Said

[The Grandmothers] introduced the idea of the right to identity which is now part of the international law. It is part of the convention of the rights of the child. I made that known for the English-speaking public here, because the United States hasn't even ratified the Convention of the Rights of the Child. People don't know anything about it. So when I give talks about it here, people really open their eyes. There are human rights we don't even think about in this country. Human rights is always an evolving concept, it's not set in stone. The fact that this is new work and conceptualized new human rights — that's a very important contribution.
