A 60-year-old woman died this morning at the Central University Hospital of Asturias (HUCA) after being attacked by a man, who has already been arrested, in the vicinity of the Plaza de Primo de Rivera in Oviedo. As a police spokesman has told Efe, the events took place around ten o’clock last night and the investigators consider all the hypotheses, although the first indications suggest that it was his partner and it would be a crime of sexist violence .
57.3% of women over 16 years of age living in Spain have suffered some type of sexist violence in their lives
The Government Delegation against gender violence has reported that they are collecting data on the alleged murder that, if confirmed, would raise the number of women killed by their partners or ex-partners to 32 in 2020. More than a thousand women have died from sexist violence since 2003.
