The Auditorium and Congress Palace Infanta Doña Elena will host next Thursday, at 12.30 and 19.30, the screenings of the feature films "New Girls 24 hours" and "The Pimp";
an action organized by the Department of Equality under the motto Águilas against trafficking in women.
"Trafficking in persons is a difficult issue to address, because of the ruggedness of the human denigration to which their victims are subjected. Even more difficult to address, with the adolescent population in educational settings. But not addressing this issue does not protect to our girls and boys of this reality, because it deprives them of reflection and debate about this attack on human rights, rather it is presented as a reality that we must do as we do not see and do not know, ignoring what is a practice that presents sexuality as consumption and associated with violence, "said those responsible for the campaign to raise awareness against trafficking in human beings for the purpose of sexual exploitation.
