"Experience and discontinuity of university teachers (Spain 1918-1952)”

And they tried, supported by such suitable merits, at least, like those of his classmates.

Through the murder case of a transvestite activist, From the Observatory of Gender in Justice we accompany diversity organizations in the process of defining the crime by the group itself. In recognition of justice that it lacks the elements to properly understand the systemic vulnerability of transvestite lives, for the first time in that trial, a trans person was summoned as an expert witness, and the concept "transvesticide / transfemicide" elaborated by transvestite and transgender organizations was used in the ruling..
