Adeje council has a series of activities planned for the month of March focussing on the important role women play in all walks of life

To celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8th) the Adeje council has drawn up a busy programme of events all “contributing to the breaking down of the barriers that obstruct women achieving equality”, according to Councillor Carmen Lucía Rodríguez del Toro.

Among the main acts will be the awarding of the Abinque prize, to be celebrated on Saturday March 11th at 8pm in the Costa Adeje Tourism Development Centre (CDTCA), and the art exhibition “Mujeres Adeje-Creativa” featuring 50 women artists, which will open to the public in the Adeje Cultural Centre on March 8th.

The council will also mark the second anniversary of the establishment of the Adeje Equality council, an initiative that has brought women and men together on a consultative body whose aims include the empowerment of women and preventing inequality, as well as the removal of real obstacles to achieving equality.

During the month the council has also arranged a series of different cultural, education and leisure activities.  During next week secondary school students will be attending workshops on professional diversity, there will be a theatre presentation by Zálatta Theatre Company about the work of female pioneers Marie Curie and Spanish equality activist Clara Campoamor and on Friday March 10th there is a screening of “La bicicleta verde” (The Green Bicycle) a film directed by Saudi Arabian Haifaa Al Mansour.
