You Said It...
As long as there are many people in the world that underestimate women's issues ... women judges are bound to work together on the major issues that concern us: gender based violence and the development of laws that combat it, human trafficking, women's health and reproductive rights, digital developments in judicial activity, labor inequality, having children, and the international restitution of minors, among others. - Hon.
