The Malaga provincial government has organised various activities to commemorate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on 25 November.
Workshops for young people, informative talks, self-defence classes and theatrical performances, together with the reinforcement of campaigns such as 'No No. Solo Sí Sí' and 'No Violencia Machista', will take place from Manilva to Vélez-Málaga, and inland in Arriate, Casabermeja, Pizarra, Coín, Mijas and Cómpeta, among others.
Other events will take place in Benalmádena and Torremolinos, where, collectively, 338 women are currently under police protection: 68 of these are considered to be living under a high risk of further aggression.
The Municipal Information Center for Woman (CMIM) in Arroyo de la Miel will host a series of programmes and projects on gender equality and violence, while also offering legal advice and individualised psychological care.
On Monday 25 November, members and employees of Torremolinos town hall will gather in Plaza Blas Infante for a minute's silence in honour of the victims of gender violence. This will be followed by a flash mob performed by students of IES Playamar. The song chosen for the occasion is Manuel Carrasco's Woman of a Thousand Battles.
Fuengirola council has installed a purple ribbon on the facade of the town hall in commemoration of the day, while a tree that symbolises all female victims of sexist violence so far this year has been placed in the entrance.
