“It has to do with the end of the normalization of machismo speech, that very often is also hate speech, transphobic speech, LGBTI-phobic speech, and, in the end, are at the base of, for example, hate crimes in Spain against the LGBTI population being the ones that increased the most proportionally. And, internationally, there is also an increase, a strengthening of the machismo reaction to the advancement of women’s rights. If there wasn’t the normalization of these type of speeches its advancement would be much slower.”

STORYLINE:

The Minister of Equality of Spain, Irene Montero, said in New York that “the conclusion that feminism is changing the world is a reality.”

Speaking to journalists in New York on Friday (10 Mar) on the sidelines of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), Montero argued that the change is coming “from the feminist movements, the popular movements, but also at the institutional level.”

For the minister, “that can only be a point of pride.”

“In Spain we usually say that the feminist movement is the best our country has,” Montero said.

The minister also mentioned “the end of the normalization of machismo speech, that very often is also hate speech, transphobic speech, LGBTI-phobic speech, and, in the end, are at the base of, for example, hate crimes in Spain against the LGBTI population being the ones that increased the most proportionally.”

According to her, “internationally, there is also an increase, a strengthening of the machismo reaction to the advancement of women’s rights.”

Montero added, “If there wasn’t the normalization of these type of speeches its advancement would be much slower.”

The sixty-seventh session of the CSW takes place from 6 to 17 March, in New York, under the theme “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls”.
