Dallas Denny, transgender academic, activist and editor of Transgender Tapestry magazine, on transgenderism in the 90's

Melinda St. Louis, of Witness for Peace, on some of the repercussions of American policy in Latin America

" In these countries, basically what they're told is, 'Your competitive advantage is cheap labor, and that's what you need to market.' And so how do you market that? You market that by not enforcing your labor laws and by having very low minimum wage. "
- Melinda St. Louis
