Irene Montero: "To prevent abusers from murdering children, Juana Rivas must be defended"

They need feminist justice“, has assured.

The head of Equality has indicated that what happened with Anna and Olivia in Tenerife “It’s the tip of the iceberg that ruins and destroys the lives of millions of women. “” There is a very important part of the pain and violence exercised against these girls and women that is irreparable and it weighs on me as a minister that I did not arrive on time, “she lamented.
