The Councillor for Social Policy and Equality, Miguel Ángel Peña, recalled the obligation of citizens to report if they see or hear possible abuse

“Gender violence is not a private problem, it is a violation of human rights that is incumbent on all of society, especially the public powers. For this reason, in this situation of Alarm State, with the difficulties that isolation in homes adds, we want to inform all women who may be experiencing these situations of violence the actions of prevention and response to ongoing gender violence”.

With these words from the Ministry of Equality, the Councillor for Social Policy and Equality, Miguel Ángel Peña, has reminded all women in the municipality that the fight against this social scourge continues to be active from the Centre for Attention to Victims of Gender Violence ( CAVI).
