Out of the total inquiries, 71 were from women visiting the delegation for the first time. It was also specified that out of the nearly 800 inquiries, 52.9 percent were from immigrant women and 13.8 percent were related to gender violence.

The majority of the attention is given to the age group between 40 and 49 years. 21 percent of the inquiries are from victims of gender violence when processing the Active Insertion Income (RAI), and a dozen new tele-assistances have been managed.

Participation of the Head of the Unit Against Gender Violence

The Local Table also featured the participation of Amaya Martinez, the head of the Unit Against Gender Violence at the Government Sub-delegation in Malaga.

Remedios Cueto, the coordinator of the Andalusian Women’s Institute (IAM) in Malaga, stated that gender violence is a very difficult social scourge to completely eradicate, but all possible means, programs, and protocols are being implemented, such as a recent risk assessment protocol, to act ex officio based on the same.
