Laura Escanes’ reflection on Women’s Day
“A few years ago I was one of those who congratulated today and had even participated in an advertising campaign with some brand, a supposedly feminist campaign”, she has been honest in her stories. In this text, the Catalan has confessed that she is not ashamed of it because, “thanks to having done it, also I have opened my mind and I have understood why I would not do it today“.
Over the years, the influencer has learned that 8M is a day for “ask them to stop harassing us, to stop killing us, to stop raping us”, and not a date with which brands should profit from product campaigns that have nothing to do with the feminist struggle. In addition, she has wanted to dedicate her thoughts to “all women who find themselves in difficult situations to have a life”.

Despite her privileged position, the 26-year-old has also lived countless times machismo and patriarchal oppression in their own flesh. From the beginning of his relationship with Risto Mejide where he received all kinds of criticism and insults for being with a man 22 years older than her, until after the end of it. after their divorcethe messages of hate towards Escanes for having continued with his life after marriage they have multiplied.
In addition, hundreds of macho messages arrive daily to his tray on networks criticizing her attitude as a mother of Rome, his daughter in common with the publicist. From when she goes on a trip to the nights of parties or events, Laura becomes the epicenter of the criticism for “being a bad mother” or “abandoning her daughter”. Something, that on the contrary the girl’s father does not suffer and that shows that despite finding ourselves in the 21st century and in a more or less advanced society, we still have a long way to go.
