The aim of the awareness campaign “In Black Against Violence” is to promote and make the rejection of the citizens towards male violence visible. It was developed on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, on 25th November.
The diagnosis on gender inequalities in Compostela wants to be the frame for the municipal actions in the development of equality policies. The research is set up by a quantitative section of information analysis and a qualitative section based on a participatory process.
It is a collective action against male violence, which counted on the participation of more than 300 commercial establishments and different social agents in Compostela. It managed to dye the city in black during the week from 19th to 25th November, as a sign of mourning and pain for all the women who suffer from violence.
