More than 300 people participate in the IV March 'Súmate' of 'Women's Day' (08/03/2019)

More than 300 people participated in the IV Urban March 'Súmate', organized by the City of Caravaca de la Cruz, on the occasion of the 'International Day of Women'.

The tour has concluded in the Plaza del Arco with the reading of the institutional manifesto on March 8 by the Councilwoman for Women, María José Soria, and the councilor of the Municipal Group of the United Left, Juani Marín.

"Although the advances in equality have been important, there is still much to be achieved." It is necessary to end the many discriminations to which women are subject: labor, salary, glass ceiling, lack of representativeness and female referents, lack of family co-responsibility or assignment of stereotypes due to gender issues ", they highlighted.

The mayor, José Moreno, has closed the act affirmed that "March 8 is a day for the celebration, but essentially it is a day to claim a real equality that still has not come in. We have to take steps forward and we can not hear the threats from those who want to retreat. "

In calendars around the world, March 8 is a date designated to recognize women as architects of history and the struggle for their liberation and achievement of equal opportunities in all areas of society.

In 1975, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared March 8 as International Women's Day.

Since then, its commemoration has acquired a protest character, thanks to the growing action of women who, acting globally, have joined their efforts and strength in the fight against discrimination, thus helping to extend the Human Rights of women in all the world.

In 2019, the United Nations has chosen for the slogan 'Think Equality, Build Smart, Innovate for Change', to celebrate that innovation and technology create unprecedented opportunities for women and girls to play an active role in the creation of more inclusive systems.
