sexist attacks and raise awareness by guaranteeing the necessary information and attention service for safe leisure, they are becoming more and more pervasive among the attending public.
Esther Alvarez, president of the
association 'To you, woman', highlights the importance of having this type of instrument that "involves the whole of society in the fight
against sexist violencemassively spreading the necessary information to know how to act in a case of violence against women", he explains to emphasize something even more important, "bringing attention to the very environment where this type of aggression takes place".
Safe leisure and rise of a necessary trend
GranCa Life Fest is committed to this measure that promotes safe leisure, thus satisfying an essential need in massive events of this type. «There will be 8 people at all times and between artist and artist a voiceover will be broadcast informing of the
violet dot and a video will be put up accompanying this information to give visibility to this tool", explains the person in charge of this space, who assures that "more and more women and men go to
thank the presence of the violet dot and request information on how they can act in the event that they see an attack or if they or someone close to them is a victim.”
The evolution of this tool as a prevention mechanism is unstoppable, as Álvarez points out, who values it positively: «it is increasing and at each concert we are
serving over 100 people every night». Despite this, he warns that "there is still a long way to go, but it is clear that things are changing and more and more people want an end to any type of aggression or violence in any of its forms."
