Active participation by FCC employees in the International Day against Gender-based Violence

Once again, FCC showed its support of yesterday's International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. With its campaign "Margarita.  No me quiere" (Daisy. He doesn’t love me), the Public Services company created a huge daisy with over 200 messages written on petals by its employees, with the hope of putting an end to gender-based violence.

Active participation by FCC employees in the International Day against Gender-based Violence

Gender-based violence can be defined as any act of abuse, maltreatment or violence based on sexist ideas about the legitimacy of male authority over women. It is also known as violence against women, chauvinist violence or sexist violence.
FCC's commitment to eliminating gender-based violence can be summarised into two key principles:

  •  Zero tolerance toward this type of behaviour
  •  Promotion of the social and professional integration of these women in our society

Once again, FCC has joined the "Hay salida" (there is a way out) campaign run by the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality; a project of hope for victims and their lives that forms part of the initiative "Empresas por una Sociedad Libre de Violencia de Género" (businesses for a society free from gender-based violence), with the goal of uniting organisations and individuals in the fight against gender-based violence.
