THE PSOE has requested that the Torrox local council joins the ministry appointed gender violence scheme.
The PSOE councillor, María José González has put in a formal request to the local council of Torrox to sign a collaborative agreement with the VioGen scheme to cement the town at the forefront of the fight against gender violence.
The VioGen system is a comprehensive monitoring system for cases of Gender Violence and was set up in 2007 by the Ministry of Interior to offer protection and legal support to victims.
In a statement by González she said the PSOE asked the pp government to “take seriously the fight against gender violence and provide the municipality with all the measures that can be incorporated both in the police and in education so that we do not have to regret more aggressions against women”.
“We know that this struggle has never been a priority for the PP in Torrox, neither has been the work to advance equality between men and women in our society.” She continued.
González claims that the PP government of Torrox must answer to where the state allocation of €3500 has gone that was given to the party at the start of the term towards equality.
She also strongly disagrees with the PPs policies that seem to be focusing on fairs and festivals rather than bridging the gender gap in the region.
