Blogs etc

Blogs etc is just as much ‘etc.’ as blogs -anything that doesn’t fit the academic definition of a book, article or chapter.

For NACLA, May 2018, on contemporary Latin American feminism and its backlash:  Ni Una Menos Stares Down Conservative Backlash.

Please find this report I wrote in 2016 on request of the European Parliament on Sexual Violence against Minors in Latin America, which also exists in Spanish: Violencia sexual contra menores.  Knowledge about sexual violence against children is finally growing rapidly as interest increases among global policy makers and local activists. This research paper outlines the comparative contours of scale, cause, policy, and activism in six Latin American countries.
