Good news from Southern Europe on the civil rights front!
🇬🇷 Greece has banned 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒑𝒊𝒆𝒔 for LGBTQIA+ people, joining Spain, France, Germany and Malta who have already criminalized them. The ban is part of a national strategy aimed at promoting gender equality in Greece.
🇪🇸 Spain is discussing a draft law which provides 𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒖𝒂𝒍 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆 from work for women with dysmenorrhea, a strong and painful menstrual cycle. This is the first such law at European level and a radical change in the approach to a subject that is still taboo. The draft also provides for the abolition of VAT on sanitary napkins and the possibility of aborting at 16 years without parental authorisation.
💪🏻This is the Europe we like and love: a Europe on the side of rights that wants gender equality!
