Disagreements that matters. The legacy of Lohana Berkins

Lohana Berkins played a central role in the making of the "gender identity law” that was approved by the national congress in 2009. The feminist collective that carries her name, carries also her visions on decent working conditions for transpersons, particularly her experience with cooperatives. The legacy of Lohana Berkins poses fundamental questions regarding the agendas, the visions and the future of feminism globally.
