Violence against women on the rise

The Gender Committee of Mujercoop has complained that violence against women has increased, as well as cruelty against woman, given the number of victims so far this year.

Anaisa Pérez and Eufracia Gómez Morillo, officials of Mujercoop, warned that so far this year, compared to the same period last year (up to 30 August) the number of women assassinated had increased by 21% according to their figures.

In a press conference they said that the problem was not simply the increase in the number of females murdered, the serious issue was that acts of cruelty and sadism have increased. They also highlighted the unethical use of pictures of the victims especially in social media.
Nevertheless, they said that the authorities only act to resolve the crimes when the case was circulated on social media and other forms of media.

Mujercoop condemns these crimes and called on the Public Prosecution authorities to work together with the Ministry for Women and social organizations to develop a national strategy against gender violence.
