The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, spoke yesterday through a tweet about the sexist murder that took place in the Seville town of Utrera last Monday, in which he conveyed his affection to the victim’s relatives and in which he also asked to “recover the spirit of the great agreements to face this scourge”, in reference to Vox, “with unity and the continuous improvement of the protection of the victims”. The victim, a 22-year-old Nicaraguan woman, died after receiving several blows to the head with a heavy tool. The attacker, who had fled, has already been arrested.

Moreno already referred to this issue in an interview with this newspaper last week, in which he explained that, among the reasons why Santiago Abascal’s party causes more fear in the electorate than formations like eh Bildu o ERC, are the statements that are made from Vox in the field of sexist violence, “which are very difficult to digest in the middle of 2023,” he pointed out. In Andalusia, since this type of murder began to be counted in 2003, 248 women have been murdered. This year, throughout Spain, between January and July, 32 have lost their lives. The woman from Utrera has been the 1.216 from the historical series.

July has been, once again, tragic in Spain in terms of gender violence. It is, on average, the month in which the most sexist murders are committed throughout the year. In 2023, eight women have lost their lives at the hands of their partners or ex-partners. Eight other minors, four girls and four boys, have been orphaned after the death of their mothers.

Given the high number of homicides, the Ministry of Equality It met its Crisis Committee yesterday for the fourth time since its creation was approved in July 2022. The meetings are called when, within the same month, five or more sexist murders, or femicides, occur. The person in charge of appearing after the meeting was Victoria Rosell, Government delegate against Gender Violence, which, among other issues, affected the young age of three of the victims, who had not reached 30 years of age, and also, without citing Vox or pointing it out as one of the reasons why These high numbers of murders have occurred in July, Rosell did stress the need to insist to youth that violence against women cannot be the object of either relativization or denial. She revealed that only one of the eight had filed a previous complaint and stressed the need to be especially vigilant in the remainder of the summer, a period of the year in which more crimes of this type are committed.
