A feminist ‘revolution’ in opposition to gender-based violence is going on in Spain, activists say.
Ladies took to the streets in outrage final April, over the trial of 5 males, who known as themselves La manada (the wolf pack). They had been accused of gang-raping a teen, however had been discovered responsible of a lesser offence and acquitted of rape.
The ruling prompted a #MeToo-style outpouring of girls’s tales on social media. The federal government promised to alter the sexual assault legal guidelines.
However the feminists are dealing with a backlash. Vox, a brand new political social gathering which has been accused of waging conflict in opposition to girls, is gaining floor.
Spain holds a normal election on April 28.
