“The feminist movement has carried out the most important and least bloody revolution of the past 200 years,” a long-time Uruguayan women’s rights activist and academic said. As a result of this revolution, eyes were opened, minds were changed and the unseen – be it abortion, femicide or unpaid work – became visible. For many decades, however, the tireless but often quiet work deployed to recast women as fully human – by reconceptualizing women’s rights as human rights and turning their attainment into a legitimate object of public policy – remained restricted to very small groups of highly committed activists.
