"Julieta Lanteri from Argentina wrote in 1922 that female emancipation had to be conquered and women did not have to beg for it. Lanteri, a physician, meant by this infatigable work using all legal tools available.  Painstakingly and cleverly she got in 1911 a tribunal's permission to vote long before female voting was introduced in Argentina. Many things have changed worldwide since then but the essential message of fighting for gender rights and minority rights acknowledgment is more than ever valid. And this task concerns us all. Gender equality is an essential component of the human rights protection and promotion. "
