Do not brand me, do not command me

Mother, sister, or wife, I need not be

Fie on you! Do not try to define me!

When you define me, you confine me

I am me, just me.

Do not ever limit my thought

Do not tell me what I am not

If I am selfish, I do not hold monopoly

If I am moody, see it not as some folly

I am me, just me.

Stop the labels, enough with the stereotype

Look deep in the mirror, I hold no gripe

The burden of compassion, the burden…

International Women's Day 2021

I get tired and then I get up too .

I smile and I frown too

I work and I laze too

I sleep and I get up early too

I dream and I am realistic too

I complaint and be complacent too

I compliment and I want appreciation too.

Yes I am all this and all that more

But I don't want to be celebrated on only one day anymore

I believe in rights

And call upon you to say it out loud too

Equality, Dignity, Freedom is how we wish

Happy International…

The SALT Approach: Towards Collective Ownership

“Collective action remains the best way of renewing the march towards the great trinity of liberty, equality, and solidarity.”

International Women's Day 2021 (and every day)

'No Room for Misinterpretation'

The jurisprudence of the CEDAW committee seem to be the least well known and the least referenced, compared to all of the other committees for the various human rights conventions. I'm determined to change this! 

I'm preparing to write some articles which emphasize some key findings and judgements that the committee has made over the years. And where relevant highlight some of its failings.

While I was analysing the cases…

Private sector is progresibly opened to impact evaluation

Find more about main challenges for impact evaluation in Latin America in a paper we developed together with …

Put understanding first. Then (maybe) measure.

There is this knee-jerk reflect about "putting a number on everything". As if only numbers give a seal of credibility and authority. We should start being more vocal in resisting the tyranny of "measures first".

In social development we are grappling with many complex ideas, which can take many forms.…
