SVAW newsletter 08: Spanish government reacts: Your actions make a difference to women
An Amnesty International (AI) report on family violence in Spain makes a significant difference. This report prompted an immediate government response. Within a week of the report's launch, Vice-President María Teresa Fernández de la Vega met with AI Spain, and not only expressed concern about AI's findings but committed to establishing regular meetings between government delegates and AI. AI made clear that pressure would not cease until Spain's government offered more than words for those women who suffer gender based violence.
