SPAIN: Leader tells Spanish Women to prevent rape-Close your curtains


Spain's anti-rape guide: 1) Close your curtains
Spain’s Interior Ministry has been slammed after it released a series of anti-rape measures for women, including closing the curtains at night to stop peeping toms.

“It’s a form of scaremongering, it puts the blame on women and it stops them from taking responsibility,” tweeted socialist Equality Minister Carmen Montón about the ruling party’s anti-rape advice sheet.

The country’s Interior Ministry has offended many other Spanish citizens with its ‘preventative’ list of points, including “carrying a whistle”, “not writing your first name on your letter box”, “leaving the lights on in more than one room at home so it doesn’t seem like you’re alone” and “not getting into the lift if there’s a stranger”.

Led by the religiously devout Jorge Fernández, Spain’s Ministerio de Interior has been described as “retrograde”, “unbearable” and “insulting” on social media, an overwhelming number of tweets on the advice list arguing it holds women responsible for being the victims of rape.

Former socialist politician Soleded Murillo tweeted: “There’s nothing more dangerous than an incompetent government: Close the curtains to stop women from being raped, says Interior Ministry”.

The news comes after police in Malaga arrested five young men aged 17 to 23 for the rape of a young woman on Sunday.

Francisco de la Torre, mayor of the southern Spanish city, has also been criticized for playing down the importance of the crime when stating “there are more than a thousand rapes every year in Spain” and “let’s not give the impression that Malaga is unsafe”.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
