A library of references in permanent construction, and probabily already out of date. Many of the descriptions are not yet translated to english, for which I apologize.
While everyone was laughing at the obscenities of Trump, a record number of women ran for Congress in the USA and got elected. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is probabily the best known of them, along with Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib.

Portuguese non-profit association of people affected by HIV/AIDS, fighting for the erradication of the epidemic and the improvement of the quality of life of people living with HIV.
