Gómez Alcorta heads a project to update the Law on Violence against Women

This November 25, within the framework of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, the minister Elizabeth Gomez Alcorta together with national legislators will announce the beginning of a project that aims to reform the Law 26,485 from “Comprehensive Protection to Prevent, Punish and Eradicate Violence against Women in the areas in which they develop their interpersonal relationships”.

The Minister of Women, Gender and Diversity (MMGyD) will lead the meeting that will take place from 12.30 pm this Thursday in the Chamber of Deputies with the aim of “putting into discussion new types and modalities of gender violence” and that these translate into the modification of Law 26,485 .

The proposal seeks to incorporate the new perspective of diversity and provide tools to address violence in a new social context that includes a more comprehensive look at gender-based violence, economic violence, access to habitat and work by women and femininity, among others.

In turn, it is proposed strengthen the role of the provinces, municipalities and social organizations territorial to consolidate “a comprehensive model of State policy towards gender-based violence,” as announced in a statement.

The discussions and the information collected will function as input for the drafting of the bill to be presented on November 25, 2022. In turn, as indicated by the Gómez Alcorta portfolio, during this time there will be workshops and participatory forums with specialists from all over the country who will contribute their eyes to the reform of Law 26,485.

In addition, this November 25 the MMGyD will carry out a series of activities throughout the country in commemoration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

Among others will be organized Feminist Squares in the 24 districts of the country. In each of them there will be workshops, debate rounds, exhibitions and other activities, where they will be invited to jointly reflect on violence against women and LGBTI +. All the information in this link.
