#Diversity - Therezinha Zerbini, a lawyer from #Brazil

Therzinha Zerbini died. She is the kind of woman that deserves to be better known. There is no article yet in English but from what I understand using Google translate, it is people like her that shaped history.

She is a founder of the Movimento Feminino pela Anistia. It does not even have a Wikipedia article in Portuguese..

This organisation was vocal about the existence of imprisonment, torture and political persecution. At the time when these things happened. As such it was timely, relevant and in the end it won the day.

Mrs Zerbini is the kind of woman we should know more about.
