Tonight in Calasparra neighbors of the town have met, in the Emilio Pérez Piñero square, to support the claim of a more just and egalitarian society in which the total eradication of violence against women is achieved.
Any form of violence suffered by women for the mere fact of being so, and suffered by many women in our country.
Violence against women remains an obstacle to achieving equality, development, peace, as well as respect for the human rights of women and girls.
What is more, the promise of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of not letting anyone be left behind cannot be fulfilled without first ending violence against women and girls.
Â«More than a thousand women since 2003, 34 boys and girls since 2013 and 275 orphaned minors.
Figures that remind us that this is a fight that we have to continue fighting. âThese have been the words of the mayor of equality Cristina Ruiz, who has read the manifesto against violence against women and has led the act tonight.
