For Secondary students, a projection has been prepared in their schools of a two-chapter drama-series developed with content related to the theme of micromachisms, "the machismos of the day to day, the most subtle but no less important, since they maintain inequalities in many situations and harm both men and women, in such a way that they are the basis of the maintenance of the macho culture, "explained Lola Gómez. The play, performed by the Clandestino Teatro company, seeks to activate the critical gaze so that each person who views the show draws their own conclusions and analyzes to what extent the way of doing things can have an impact on "feeding" sexist and unequal behaviors that are the basis of gender violence. On the other hand, between the 20th and 27th, talks have been scheduled for different groups by the Corporal of the Local Police, Antonio Guardiola Lizán, Paqui Ruiz, technician in the area of ??Equality, Antonio Mari Simón, psychologist, and Mari Cruz Trigueros, legal advisor to the CAVI of Jumilla.
