The activity was coordinated by the Centre for Multi-Ethnic Women's Studies and Information (CEIMM) and the Commission for the Eradication of Violence, Discrimination and Other Related Intolerance.

In this sense, it was attended by Dr. Rafaela Montoya, coroner of the municipality, and Dr. Martha Reyes, judge of the municipality of Muelle de los Bueyes, and who have worked the gender theme hand in hand with this house of studies.

Dr Montoya said that "violence is a bad public health that is greatly affecting and where the victims remain women and children." Montoya also presented the old and new forms of violence in the legal framework at the national and international levels.

For the PhD. Eugenio López Mairena, vice-chancellor of the compound, "this space, has been created and develops almost annually with the purpose of continuing to raise awareness of the issue of violence".

Lopez also recalled the "significant and imitating work that our friend Juliana did," while referring to the importance of this day with the educational community and the legacy that teacher Juliana left in the municipality as a tireless advocate for women's rights.
