Today, Queen Letizia has a busy schedule. In the morning, she presided over the act of presentation of conclusions of the II International Congress: ” The Voice of Rural Women in the World“. In the afternoon she will attend Commemorative lunch of the 80th anniversary of the Marca newspaper.
Queen arrived at the Marriott Auditorium Hotel in the morning to attend the II International Congress: ” The Voice of Rural Women in the World” organized by the Association of Families and Women of the Rural Environment (AFAMMER).
Queen Letizia met with the Board of Directors of AFAMMER before the event. The agenda of the Congress was “We advance for equality: AGENDA 2030 – 40 years of the Spanish Constitution“.
More than 1000 women from Spain and the International Community were present where speakers specializing in rural areas and equal opportunities present their thoughts.
A general view of the Auditorium.
The discussed topics included the challenges to achieve equal opportunities in rural areas, is the need to continue promoting the Law of Shared Ownership; to promote the female generational change in the countryside and end the wage gap.
Established in 1982, AFAMMER is a pioneer organization in Spain with a clear and first objective: that rural women stop being invisible and that their voice is heard in all national and international forums to meet the challenge of real equality of opportunities.
Before leaving Queen Letizia met with the guests who attended the Congress.
In the afternoon, Queen joined King Felipe for the commemorative lunch of the 80th anniversary of the Marca newspaper at Royal Theatre in Madrid.
The couple was received by the Vice President of the Government and the editor of the newspaper Marca.
A video was screened in the dining hall of the Theater showcasing the history of Marca’s 80 years and its journey along with a musical performance. The royal couple presented the honorary awards to the team of the editor and journalists marking the anniversary. The couple also presented sports awards sponsored by the newspaper.
The newspaper MARCA was born on December 21, 1938, in San Sebastian and moved to Madrid with just over a year. Its founder, Manuel Fernández Cuesta, wanted to make a sports magazine that was initially available every week and then daily. The head of this sports newspaper understood the universal vocation of sport and became a witness and speaker of all disciplines, of all hobbies.
Currently, MARCA is the benchmark sports newspaper in Spain, leader in sales and the most read in our country, according to EGM data. The Marca newspaper belongs to the multimedia communication group Unidad Editorial, which also publishes the newspapers El Mundo and Expansión, as well as the specialized publications Diario Médico and Correo Farmacéutico.
