To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, here is the 1990 resolution from the Archivo de la Ciudad de Arganda del Rey to create a Consejo Local de la Mujer, the Local Council for Women, to promote the participation of women to all aspects of the public life of the municipality of Arganda. As the late judge of the Supreme US court Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, Women belong in all places where decisions are being made
The Municipal Council has the following objectives:
– Offer a channel that enables the participation of women in defense of their interests and rights in the political, social, cultural and economic development of the municipality of Arganda.
– Promote women’s associations and collective organization, to facilitate discussion on all aspects of municipal policy as well as to contribute to the dissemination of rights, equality plans, etc.
– Encourage cooperation between women, as well as the exchange of opinions between different groups, both locally and within the Community of Madrid.
– Interest the population as a whole in municipal problems directed at women.
