Tonight (Thursday), at 7:00 pm, you are invited by the Torrevieja Casino Cultural Society to a presentation on women and the constitution, organised by the University of Alicante in Torrevieja and the City Council, through the Department of Equality.
The conference will take place at the Casino Cultural Society of Torrevieja at 19:00 hours, and the presenter will be the Constitutional Law professor at the University of Alicante, María Concepción Torres Díaz.
Admission is free until full capacity.
The paper ‘Women and Constitution: the constitutional reform from a gender-sensitive analysis’ takes as reference on December 6, 2018, when the Spanish Constitution turned 40 years, and uses this emblematic date as a basis to make a disquisition about the need of a revision of the Fundamental Standard from the perspective of women as a constituent subject. In this way, it is intended to offer a reflection on how the law in general, and the constitutional law in particular, has thought (and thinks) of women.

She also teaches in the University Master’s Degree in Law at the University of Alicante and is a practicing lawyer at the Murcia Bar Association.
