Soraya Rodriguez on the rights and opportunities of all women and girls

Soraya Rodríguez recalls that the rights of women and girls are questioned with every crisis and regrets the delay in the presentation of the directive against gender-based violence.

Renew Europe MEP Soraya Rodríguez recalls that the rights of women and girls are questioned with any political, economic or religious crisis, as has been the case of a Polish activist was condemned for helping others exercise their right to abortion.

Rodriguez recalls the crimes committed by the Afghan regime, which is the first country to execute women and has recently poisoned 7,000 students.

She also points to Samanta, a female astronaut in a mostly male-dominated field and puts her as an argument to force MEPs to work every day so that women have access to all rights.

Rodriguez criticizes that the directive against gender violence is late, after the murder of more than 50 women, and that it is necessary to continue working for equal pay and representation without giving for granted any rights.
