Carmen Calvo (to be democrat, to be feminist)

The voice of the Spanish Government Vice President Carmen Calvo, speaking at the institutional event to commemorate the Women’s Day, in which she has assured feminism isn’t a question of solidarity but of justice and only supposes a “threat” for “privileges and for abusers.”

“Many men know feminism doesn’t represent a threat, except for privileges and for abusers,” said Calvo, asserting feminism “isn’t the freedom of a few, but the equality of all.”

Carmen Calvo has predicted “women’s time will last long because we need many countries to commit to real equality” and has said that “you can not be a democrat without being a feminist.”

In addition to Calvo, the owners of Interior, Fernando Grande-Marlaska; Culture and Sports, José Guirao; Treasury, María Jesús Montero; Economy, Nadia Calviño; Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera; Agriculture, José Luis Planas; and Territorial Policy, Meritxell Batet, have been present at this event, organized in the Women’s Institute, in which the acknowledgments for equality 2019 have been delivered.
