Press Release From Carolyn Ramsay - Honored to Announce

Carolyn Ramsay for City Council
This morning I was thrilled when California State Contoller Betty Yee made a surprise endorsement for my campaign at the National Women's Political Caucus breakfast.

Her generous words mean so much to me: 

"Carolyn has spent more than fifteen years preparing for this job, dedicating herself to serving her community. Carolyn shares my approach to strong fiscal responsibility while protecting critical services neighborhoods count on. Los Angeles needs Carolyn Ramsay as the next Councilwoman. She’ll work to make the budgeting process more transparent, help local businesses succeed, and grow the local economy.” 

Betty has been a champion for government transparency and a strong fiscal watchdog for our state for years. As a Councilmember, I’ll also focus on making sure our neighborhoods know how City Hall is spending their money so we can better prioritize fixing our roads and sidewalks and keeping our communities safe.

Women's Rights and International Law

Women's Rights and International Law

All through March, thee core focus was on Women and Women's Rights

It has been 18 years since Hillary Clinton made a historic statement at the Beijing Conference, noting that women’s rights are human rights. And yet, though we’ve come a long way since, the “long way” has only been in time, not in developments. Today, women are as marginalised, brutalised and ostracised as they were nearly two decades ago. The only difference is the extent of exposure of the predicament that these women face – whether it is in the mass media or in the World Wide Web’s far-reaching social media.
From The A38 Foundation of International Law:

Here is a two part article on Crimes against Women under Public International Law.
Part I talks about how jurisprudence helped engender International Criminal Law and
Part II talks about how we can legislate for the issue under International Criminal Law.  
In conflict, laws remain unenforced, and sexual violence and rape occur without restraint. All commitments made on gender and the R2P doctrine have remained confined to paper. Is it time to Engender R2P? Read here
