FUENGIROLA Town Hall has developed a complete programme to highlight the towns equality. New workshops will be launched that aim to empower women and will be held, respectively, on March 10 and 13. Registration can be done in the Women’s area of the ‘Colores’ building in Los Boliches.
Registration is already open for the first event will be ‘Un Mundo sin género’, a conference given by the social integrator Mari Luz Puentes. It will be on March 10 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Councillor for Equality, Rocío Rodríguez commented that “most societies have rooted masculine and feminine as the only adaptable identities, but history and current affairs tell us about the diversity of Humanity, and the social changes that are shaping a more egalitarian world, a world without gender.” Topics that will be addressed at the meeting will include, differences between sex and gender, stereotypes and gender roles and sexual diversity among others.
Subsequently, on Friday, March 13, the ‘Menstruación sostenible’ workshop will be held, taught by Úrsula García-Carpintero Morell, biologist for the company ‘Nuestro Herbolario’. It will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the ‘Colores’ building. Registration can be done in the Área de Igualdad with priority being given to people registered in Fuengirola.
In this case, Rodríguez explained that “the idea and objective of this workshop is to be able to transmit and share with women the importance of the menstrual cycle and the taboos that exist around it.”
