Mariana Pineda was an empowered and free woman of her time, and she has appeared to us as a reference model for those European women subjected to situations of abuse.
Gender violence is a wide phenomenon, a real issue both in the less developed countries as in the richest ones. Our project has the objective to create an international network among European workers against violence, so that they can compare their own national systems: doing so, they could exchange good practices and adopt the best ones in their country.
To learn more about Mariana Pineda’s story it is possible to visit the European Women’s Center “Mariana Pineda”, located at Calle Aguila 19. This Center, headquarters of the Municipal Council of Women, is open to the women of the city as a place of meeting and projects, with the aim of ending gender inequality.
We recommend a visit to this fascinating place, which concerns both our history and the values of freedom, security and respect that we aim to spread.
