This year we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Belém do Pará Convention. As we commemorate this important event, we celebrate the feminist movements that, by invoking the Convention, have influenced the drafting of laws on violence against women, undertaken awareness campaigns, and supported legal and health services for women throughout the Americas.
