In his last intervention as a member of the Government, Montero also highlighted his work over the years: “Spain is already different thanks to feminism. And I don’t say it out of naivety, The reactionary offensive is here and we must take it very seriously because it is organized from deep and powerful sectors of the State“. Montero took office as Minister of Equality on January 13, 2020, when the Coalition Government of PSOE and Unidas Podemos was formed.
Not only have his words generated a stir on social networks, the shirt he wore for this intervention has also attracted attention. A white shirt with two words engraved on it: “Trust pussy”. He accompanied her with a purple checkered vest.
The other political focus has been on the La Zarzuela Palace, where the 22 ministers of the new Government have previously promised or sworn in before the King Felipe VI.
