The Councilor for Equality, Ángela Zaragozí, pointed out that "the possibilities for the development of creativity are many" and pointed out issues that range from "gender equality in sports or employment opportunities, to domestic tasks and the denunciation of relationships toxic, going through the detection of situations of machismo or aspects of empowerment ”.
