INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY takes place on 8th March and this year, the people of Teulada Moraira decided one day simply did not afford enough time to honour the women´s fight for equal rights in our society and have done a great job in organising ‘Women’s Week’.
The week will take place around International Women’s Day itself and between 4th – 12th March with Various sports activities, exhibitions, workshops and lectures have been organised.
Councillor Rosana Caselles spoke at the press conference and highlighted that the moment we can guarantee equal rights to women, we will have a better democratic society and this will promote wellbeing as well as evolution. It also means promoting a new social way of living, with women at the heart.
The programme for the week will focus on the work women accomplish and will encourage the society to further understand the importance of equal rights.
A current and worrying issue given the recent rise in domestic violence rates across Spain, the programme has also been designed to continue the fight against the damage done by gender-specific violence. The programme will help to prevent this social problem and offers activities for all age groups.
The programme starts on 4th March with a padel tournament for women.
On 8th March at 12pm the manifest will be read on the Town Hall Square and the Espai la Senieta will welcome an exhibition of paintings, ‘Piedra Libre’, by the artist Paola R. Bavaro at 6:30pm. At 7pm there is a workshop ‘Claus per a millorar la nostra vida afectiva sexual’ conducted by Maite Ahuir, sexologist.
