MARIA JOSE CATALA, the Partido Popular’s regional secretary general, described a recent gathering between female politicians as a “feminist coven.”

The Valencia City meeting was attended by Yolanda Diaz, who is Spain’s minister of Labour and  Second vice-president, as well as other leading members of left-wing parties.

Monica Oltra, the Valencian Community’s vice-president who also heads the Equality department, declared that she was proud to be a feminist and to attend the Otras Politicas meeting.


“Between witch and Inquisitor, I know whose side I’m on,” she said.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
