Benidorm condemns the last sexist crime committed in Alzira
The municipal corporation of Benidorm has observed a minute of silence this Friday to show its rejection of the latest sexist murder confirmed in our country. This is a 58-year-old woman, who was murdered by her partner on August 30 in the Valencian town of Alzira. The victim had an adult daughter and a son.
Plaza de SS MM los Reyes de España has hosted this silent rally, which has been led by the mayor of the city, Toni Pérez, along with other members of the local Corporation.
With this, there are now 40 women murdered in Spain so far this year by their partners or ex-partners and 1,224 since 2003, the date on which victims 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 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 mobile call log. This service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and in 52 languages.
