My favorite feminist is: Clara Campoamor
What makes me angry about patriarchy:
The suffering that patriarchy has provoked throughout history to women and especially the gender violence.
My areas of expertise when it comes to VAWG:
I´m a family lawyer and provide legal support to female victims of gender-based violence, including accompaniment for female victims to their trials as they report the situations of violence they have faced.
Key issues when it comes to VAWG in your country/organization that the other EWL Observatory experts need to know.
In Spain we have a comprehensive law against gender violence but it is necessary that people who have to apply this law: judges, police, social services etc. have more training in gender.
Explain briefly your daily work as if you were to explain it to a 12 years old:
I provide legal assistance and support victims of gender violence.
If you could change one thing for women, what would that be:
I would like to finiss with crimes against life and the physical and moral integrity of women and morover I would like to work on an education in real and effective equality.
