Among other paragraphs, the statement included “as stated in the State Pact against Gender Violence, the different types of violence suffered by women require specific and comprehensive laws to adapt the need for intervention and protection to each type of violence. . It is important to consider that sexual freedom cannot just be that they do not violate us, that they do not harass us, that they do not intimidate us. Combating sexual violence must include a new framework in which women can have sexual relations in conditions of freedom, equality and security. We must promote sex-affective education so that sexual relations, in addition to being consensual, are desired and pleasant.
For all that, and in the face of all that, from the San Juan del Puerto City Council we reaffirm our commitment to feminism, to the fight against sexist violence and to effective equality between women and men. Only a society in which women do not suffer violence because they are women can be considered completely free, only a democracy free from sexist violence is a full democracy.
From this city council we will continue working and taking actions so that this becomes a reality ”- he concluded.
