Mabel Lozano directed the documentary "Girls 24 Hours" and it was viewed by just over 100 people. Vocational Training and Baccalaureate students of the Armilla institutes, as well as members of the Equality commissions and local women's associations, were all part of the public. The director discusses the prostitution of women who have been trafficked in their home countries. It was accompanied by its director, who claimed that cinema is a tool for social transformation and had to step out of his comfort zone.
Loli Canavate is the mayor of the municipality. She attended the presentation and recalled that she was the first mayor of the city in the 40-year history of democratic Town Halls. The mayor declared that March 8 is the date for claiming a more egalitarian society. She stated that we must smash all glass ceilings. This talk served to indicate that the Municipal Corporation will continue to work towards an egalitarian reality.
Canavate stated that women and men must work together in order to achieve equality. The screening and subsequent talk with Mabel Lozano took place at Casa Garcia de Viedma as part of the awareness-raising activities that the Department of Equality of the Armilla City Council undertakes throughout the course. This was intensified in March to mark International Women's Day.
In addition to the various training activities at schools and institutes, you can also enjoy events like the Comic Exhibition from Gender Perspective. The exhibition features a collection of illustrations and drawings by Fine Arts students in Granada. This exhibit reflects the current role of women today using a young and intimate language. This exhibition aims to highlight important issues such as how women can balance work and family, and sexist language.
The equality retaining wall workshop will be another highlight. This workshop promotes group cohesion, and sorority among females. These women will create a retaining wall together, and will continue to build walls using colors, new forms, and the traces of all of the women who make up the group.
A number of meetings and other important activities will be held on Friday, International Women's Day. On March 15, a charity gala with the Kendra Women's Association will take part. Seven buses with 380 women from Armilla will travel to Cordoba's capital for a day of culture and tourism. Activities will continue through March, and the activities will conclude on April 11 with a dramatic itinerary through the municipality, from a gender perspective.
