With a wave of femicides that has been hitting this country for many years, among other cases, the Argentine President Alberto Fernandez on Friday announced a domestic plan of action against gender violence until 2022.
‘We do not want to see how women suffer and die at the hands of violent men,’ the president said, submitting plan, accompanied by the Minister for Women, Genders and Diversity, Elizabeth Gomez Alcorta.
The plan was announced amid a significant increased femicides during the pandemic, which includes women, adolescents, girls and trans people.
From the Quinta de Olivos, the president affirmed that it is an ambitious plan because ‘we must be ambitious if we do not want to see how women suffer and die at the hands of violent men,’ he said.
We cannot look unfazed that women have worse working conditions than men, said Fernandez, pointing out that he knows the importance of equality as a daily practice and conduct that must be assumed.
