The PSOE denounces that women continue to be treated as "a sexual object" in billboards and posters that proliferate in the city (13/06/2018)

Councilor Begoña García Retegui regrets the "clearly denigrating" nature of advertising related to sexual services and will demand a modification of the Ordinance that regulates it since 2012, as have other municipalities, including Torre Pacheco

The Municipal Socialist Group in the City of Murcia continues to demand, six years after the Foreign Publicity Ordinance was passed, that it be treated "with respect" to women in the posters that advertise the offer of sexual services, which continue to proliferate with a "clearly denigrating" character.

It is no longer only the fences that can be found in the avenues of Murcia and on the access roads to the capital that advertise the provision of sex services by women, but also posters are stuck on walls of the city not being these spaces reserved for it.

Just as political parties during the campaign period are only allowed to post posters in the panels enabled for that purpose and otherwise are fined, in the rest of the announcements should be done in the same way "and more on the issues especially sensitive, "they argue from the PSOE warning that the city is on its way to becoming an advertising space for activities related to sex.

In October 2013, the Municipal Socialist Group demanded that the External Advertising Ordinance be amended to regulate and control sexist ads, but the time has passed and the situation, "far from improving, is getting worse," as the mayor says Begoña García Retegui.

The Governing Board approved the ordinance on February 15, 2012 to which the PSOE presented a series of allegations demanding, among other things, that a certain type of activity be imposed for directly attacking the dignity of women.

"Today, six years and four months later, we continue to see inappropriate ads from a society in which we must seek equality between the sexes and in which, however, women are sometimes treated as a sexual object," says García Retegui.

Therefore, the PSOE will move to the House a motion asking that the Ordinance be amended, as has been done in other municipalities in the country such as Barcelona, ​​Ciudad Real and, even in the region, Torre Pacheco, prohibiting advertising sexist.

The Organic Law 1/2004 of Measures for the Protection of Integrity against Gender Violence, in its chapter 2 and article 10, indicates that "advertising that uses the image of women as a humiliating or discriminatory nature will be considered illegal".

Supporting this provision, the Socialist Group claims that advertising that has a sexist content, as well as racist, xenophobic, homophobic and / or discriminatory, should be prohibited in the municipality.
