Personal experiences, Messages to encourage governments, and messages of condemnation to the executioners of women and those who carry out practices that only make the struggle for gender equality go back,
These are some signs of vindication on the part of the speakers, in a world where, in spite of the recognized efforts made by the governments to empower women, discrimination and gender violence are still in force.
