You Go, 'Grrl

On this International Day of Persons with Disabilities, we are proud to congratulate IntLawGrrl Hope Lewis, who is featured in the December 2010 American Bar Association Lawyer Spotlight. In Hope's words, "Even before I had a disability, I saw disability as a human rights issue." She also discusses the global dimensions of disability discrimination and the importance of ensuring that members of society are proactive in their approach to disability rights. Hope provides human rights lawyers and scholars with an important reminder:
When considering human rights, disability rights must be included if "human rights" are to be holistic concepts.
