The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has referred from Costa Rica, where he is on an official trip, to the latest murders of sexist violence and vicarious violence registered in Spain. This Friday it has been confirmed that the body found in the sea, off the island of Tenerife, is that of Olivia, one of the two sisters who disappeared in April. News that, along with the confession of the sexist murder of Estepa (to another minor, Rocío Caíz), has shaken the country.
“I want to refer to a fact very sad and very terrible. To one more black day in sexist violence ”, has assured Sánchez.
“All of Spain is shocked, all our support to the families whose pain is absolutely unbearable. All our rejection of sexist violence, vicarious violence, which some continue to deny “, has added the Prime Minister.
“Vicarious violence is sexist violence doubly wild and inhuman, since it not only seeks to cause pain to the woman but also to her sons and daughters. We are going to continue working to end this scourge once and for all ”, he has settled.
Rocío was 17 years old and had a whole life ahead of her. Her ex-boyfriend has murdered her.
They are killing them and we will not allow it. United, we must combat sexist violence and the discourses that deny it. #NiUnaMenos
All my solidarity and affection for his family and loved ones. https://t.co/5PsC7kj9iB
