Think Like a Mother: an attempt to give content
to those bland words "human rights"
Forty-four images, all but one of them sharply distressinghanging
in Egypt and the U.S.A., flogging in Pakistan, torture in Colombia,
savage beating in Brazil, mass graves in Peru and Indonesia, killing
of children in Guatemala and Iraq . . . With brief comments (ranging
from three words to half a page).
This was in origin a collection of photographs taken from newspapers
or other documents for passing around during invited talks about
human rights; and it will be a powerful tool for anyone else who
does such speaking, or needs to convince others (or be convinced)
of the urgency of this work. It is a personal, not an Amnesty International
book; but proceeds from it will go to Amnesty International.
10½ x 10½ in., 48 pages, photographs
incl. cover. 1995. ISBN 978-0-934546-31-7.
Some comments from human-rights activists:
Let me know if you ever get sued, I know some good lawyers
. . . I'm carrying it to look at any time I need a kick in the pants
to do more work . . .
I quoted you in a letter to the Mexican consulthe part
about other rights being important but 'first we must stop the screaming'and
he was so impressed that he invited me to lunch.
You gave the images and words for many, many of us.
