Igualdad condemns a new gender violence

The Ministry of Equality condemns a new murder by gender violence in the province of Malaga. It concerns a 28-year-old woman who was allegedly murdered by her partner on 6 August 2023. The victim had no children and there were no previous complaints of gender violence against the alleged aggressor.

With the confirmation of this case, the number of women killed by gender violence in Spain has risen to 57 in 2023 and 1,240 since 2003, when these data began to be collected.

The Minister for Equality, Ana Redondo García, and the Government Delegate against Gender Violence, Carmen Martínez Perza, once again wish to express their absolute condemnation and rejection of this sexist murder and convey their full support to the victim’s family and friends. Both the minister and the delegate call for all efforts from the institutions, administrations and society as a whole to arrive in time and prevent more deaths.

The Ministry of Equality, through the Government Delegation against Gender Violence, would like to remind you that the 016 telephone number, online queries via email at 016-online@igualdad.gob.es, the WhatsApp channel at 600 000 016 and the online chat, accessible from the website violenciagenero.igualdad.gob.es/, operate 24 hours a day, every day of the week. At 016 you can ask for advice on the resources available and the rights of victims of gender violence, as well as legal advice from 8 am to 10 pm every day of the week, with attention in 53 languages and a service adapted to possible situations of disability.

On the other hand, it also reminds us that in an emergency situation, you can call 112 or the emergency numbers of the National Police (091) and the Civil Guard (062). If it is not possible to make a call and in a dangerous situation, the ALERTCOPS application can be used, from which an alert signal will be sent to the police with geolocation. These means of assistance can be activated by the victim and also by anyone who knows or suspects a case of gender violence. It is the duty of society as a whole.
