27 February 2019
Igualdad organiza un apretado programa de actos para celebrar el ‘Día Internacional de la Mujer’

The Department of Equality of Benidorm City Hall has organized an extensive program of events on the occasion of the 'International Women's Day' to be held on March 8. The councilwoman of the area, Paquita Ripoll, has presented today these activities, which will run from Friday, March 1 until Sunday, March 10.

The events scheduled by the Department of Equality begin on Friday, March 1, at 18.00, with the play 'Los Inconquistables' by Tossal Teatre at 20:00 in the hall of the City of Benidorm. On Monday, March 4 at 12:00, the banner commemorating International Women's Day will be placed on the balcony of the City Hall.
