“Our homes, which we all experience as the only safe place, may now be the most dangerous in the world for many women,” commented the interpreter.
“It is a fear that no woman in the world deserves to feel and to know that during the confinement the number of women victims of violence by their partners has increased, it angers me even more. This day is to encourage all women (but also friends and family who know the situation) to always denounce any act of violence, abuse or stalking… Let’s say STOP violence against women! ”, He emphasized.
