“I am not naive, there is violence and there will be, but the pretexts to justify that violence or what motivates it is what we have to combat” and he wanted to make it clear that “all frivolous behavior with gender violence must be eradicated. Whoever does not agree should not say anything. The youngest are not helped by instilling values ​​of aggressiveness or difference through social networks ”, he argued.

The Minister of Equality of Castilla-La Mancha, Blanca Fernández, has explained that the man who has allegedly murdered the new sentimental partner of his ex-partner in Gálvez, “had just” got out of jail where he entered precisely for having attacked the woman . The 35-year-old woman has been seriously injured after suffering an assault with a knife in Gálvez (Toledo), and her partner has died at the hands of the man who has already been arrested as the alleged perpetrator of the events.

“We condemn this new sexist attack, an attack on a 35-year-old woman who has saved her life. But the murderer has killed her partner,” explained Fernández. As the leader explained, the alleged perpetrator of the crime had been released from jail this summer after attacking the same woman. “Sexist violence does not stop, we have been aware for many years that it exists and we have to fight against it, equipping ourselves with better mechanisms,” stressed the counselor. The woman did not have a protection system, having refused it.

The woman also had a restraining order against the aggressor. “That was breached by trying to take his life and that of his partner ahead of him. We regret the murder and condemn it with full force and the conviction that we have to continue fighting with the policies that do not leave the fight against sexist violence in the background. and that they do not leave the fight for equality in the background. Only real equality can put an end to machismo, “said Blanca Fernández.
