(CNN Spanish) — Millions of women in Spain are called to join the marches on International Women’s Day 2022, which this year comes with the call for equality in this country.
From the Ministry of Equality, the government launched a campaign entitled “In Spain we call it equality”, “inspired by one of Rigoberta Bandini’s songs, with which it wants to appeal to feminism as something that makes life better for the majority of the population”, according to the Moncloa website.
These are some concentrations and marches called in Spain for the 8M.
The Huella Feminista organization has designed a demonstration that includes protests from homes and neighborhoods to a large feminist mobilization that includes a cacerolazo at noon for Women’s Day.
Thus, from the first hour of March 8, the call is to put up posters in the windows where feminist demands are made. In the morning hours, around 9:00 am, the invitation is for women to dress in purple throughout the day. Later, at noon, there is a call for a cacerolazo: “to make noise” to claim rights. And late in the afternoon, around 4 pm, there will be a concentration that is expected to arrive in Atocha, in the center of Madrid, at 7 pm
“Rights for all, every day,” calls for La Huella Feminista.
Women from the telemarketing sector will also participate in this mobilization against job insecurity. “During the pandemic we were considered essential, and now we are invisible,” says a CGT Marktel strike call, which invites women to make strikes every two hours on their shift.
