It has become one of the voices of reference to understand how sexist violence works. Criminologist and criminal lawyer specialized in this type of cases, Carla Vall i Durán (Vilanova i la Geltrú, 1989) accompanies women victims of gender and sexual violence in Barcelona in the long and hard judicial journey that they must go through when they report, but defends that the criminal gaze must also be accompanied by “notes from other sciences” so that the abuse is fully appreciated and understood. Vall has been one of the experts interviewed by Telecinco during the broadcast of the documentary series on Rocío Carrasco, in which she narrates the violence she claims to have suffered at the hands of her ex-husband, Antonio David Flores, who has not been judicially convicted. “The testimony has helped many women say ‘this is what has happened to me,” he says.
