Benidorm expresses its rejection of the latest sexist crime committed in Salamanca

Minuto de silencio en el Ayuntamiento de Benidorm.

The municipal corporation of Benidorm has once again observed a minute of silence this Thursday to show its rejection of the latest sexist murder confirmed in our country. This is a 40-year-old woman, who was murdered by her partner on August 30 in the province of Salamanca. The victim had two daughters and two minor sons.

Plaza de SS MM los Reyes de España has hosted this silent rally that has been led by the mayor of the city, Toni Pérez, along with other members of the Corporation.

With this, there are now 39 women murdered in Spain so far this year by their partners or ex-partners and 1,223 since 2003, the date on which victims of violence against women began to be counted. Likewise, the number of minors who have been orphaned due to gender violence amounts to 45 so far in 2023 and 422 since 2013.

In addition to this case, the Government Delegation against Gender Violence and the State Security Corps and Forces are investigating the murder of a woman at the hands of her ex-partner in Alzira as another possible case of sexist violence. The crime occurred yesterday in this Valencian town. The victim was 58 years old.

The Department of Equality, headed by Councilor Ángela Zaragozí, recalls that Benidorm City Council has personnel specialized in gender violence to provide free advice to any woman who feels threatened. Likewise, she reiterates once again that the victims have the free telephone number 016, which leaves no trace on the telephone bill, although it is advisable to delete it from the cell phone call log. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and in 52 languages.
