The thirteen city councils attached to the Network of Protected Municipalities against Gender Violence, after the assembly held two months ago, have collected on Monday the plaques that accredit them as one of the localities that make up this space for the exchange of experiences, training and Networking to give the best possible response to this social scourge.
In her last act as deputy of Equality, Isabel García has considered that "27 women murdered so far this year, and more than a thousand since the fatal victims of gender violence are accounted for, are a sufficient reason for the institutions go into action beyond the minute of silence and the flag at half-mast. "
This was the germ of a provincial network that seeks to involve municipalities and connect them to share their resources and experiences, because "the first door that touches a victim is its municipality, through mayors and mayors or officials of the consistory ".
The goal of the Network of Protected Municipalities against Gender Violence is that the work done by these municipalities is increasingly efficient, not only putting them in contact and promoting joint work, but also completing with economic aid the items that local authorities destined to programs of Equality and fight against sexist violence.
In the act that dismisses the legislature on Equality have collected the plaque accrediting membership of the Network, which must be placed in a visible place of the municipal offices, the mayor of Puçol, Paz Carceller, the Villar del Arzobispo, Maria Angeles Beaus, and that of Llutxent, Mª Rosario Boscà, as well as the mayors of Paterna, Juan Antonio Sagredo, Sagunto, Darío Moreno, and Bonrepós i Mirambell, Rubén Rodríguez.

To all of them Isabel Garcia has urged to continue working together against gender violence, regardless of the political color of each municipality. .
