Victims of gender violence now reach 48 in 2023 and 1,232 since 2003, when they began to be counted
Benidorm expresses its rejection against the latest sexist crime committed in Tarragona
This Wednesday, the municipal corporation of Benidorm observed a minute of silence to condemn the latest sexist crime confirmed in our country. This is a 41-year-old woman, who was murdered by her partner last Sunday, September 17, in the province of Tarragona. The woman did not have minor children nor had she filed prior complaints against her attacker.
Plaza de SS MM los Reyes de España has hosted a silent rally to show Benidorm's rejection of this new sexist violence case. It has been headed by the first deputy mayor, Ana Pellicer, and the councilor for Equality, Ángela Zaragozí, along with other members of the local Corporation.
With this murder, the number of women whose lives have been taken by their partners or ex-partners now amounts to 48 victims in 2023 and 1,232 since 2003, the date on which crimes of violence against women began to be counted.
The Department of Equality recalls that Benidorm City Council has personnel specialized in gender violence to provide free advice to any woman who feels threatened. Likewise, it reiterates 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 mobile call log. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and in 52 languages.
