In 1981, the First Latin American and Caribbean Feminist Meeting set this day to raise awareness and awareness about violence against women, in commemoration of three Dominican activists. Patricia, Minerva and María Teresa Mirabal were brutally murdered on November 25, 1960 under the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo Molina. Later, in 1993, the General Assembly of the United Nations Organization (UN) officially declared this date as the international day against gender violence, and issued for the first time the Declaration on the elimination of violence against women. .
On the occasion of this day, the URJC joins this fight and adheres to the manifestos that have been published by both the Network of Gender Equality Units for University Excellence (RUIGEU) as CRUE Spanish Universities.
