Buenos Aires, Aug 10 (Prensa Latina) Argentine President Alberto Fernández will launch new public works today with a gender perspective, one of the various initiatives he is promoting for greater equity and equality.
Through a videoconference in which mayors from various localities of the country will participate, the president will announce this project together with the Minister of Public Works, Gabriel Katopodis, and the Minister of Women, Gender and Diversity, Elizabeth Gómez Alcorta, in addition to the president of AySA (Argentine Water and Sanitation), Malena Galmarini.

'It is a moral imperative to build an egalitarian society, without discrimination, persecution, without disqualification and where everyone has the same opportunities, whatever their gender,' Fernandez said last March when participating in a conference on gender equality.

Flag bearer of policies in favor of giving greater prominence to women, Fernandez just yesterday referred in a message on twitter to the need to build an Argentina with more equality and free of violence, remembering the femicide of Micaela Garcia, whose shocking case made him promote the enactment of a law that imposes training on gender issues in the three branches of the State.

Today will be a very active Monday for the president. It is also expected that the Casa Rosada will lead the presentation of the Thematic Cabinets, interministerial spaces that will be created with the aim of prioritizing the execution of public policies and with the axis on economic recovery, according to the Presidency.

The first will be that of Foreign Trade, made up of the Chief of the Cabinet, Santiago Cafiero, the Deputy Chief of Cabinet, Cecilia Todesca, the Chancellor Felipe Solá, and the Ministers of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Luis Basterra; of Productive Development, Matías Kulfas; of Environment and Sustainable Development, Juan Cabandié, in addition to the head of the Central Bank, Miguel Pesce.
