steve estey says ‘social change is not something that happens overnight.’

 

‘Social change is not something that happens
overnight. But look at the situation of
women in society today! A hundred years
ago, women didn’t vote, didn’t work, didn’t
go out unescorted. In the late 1970s, the
Women’s Convention was ratified and there
are vast changes in the way that women
today engage in society. I think that the
Women’s Convention has been both the
cause and effect of this. The CRPD [Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities] will be the same.’
