The event, which will also include the reading of a manifesto, will be held on Passeig Nou from 10 am to 1 pm.
The celebration will also address violence against women in the workplace.

Finally, a training session will be organized on the prevention of forced marriages.
The mayor of Figueres, Agnès Lladó, emphasized that “Figueres wants to ensure that the daily violence that women suffer is heard in the open, but at the same time, that women are not afraid to break the silence and get out from the hiding, brave and free. “
