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’.
