“The appointment of the Ministry of Equality is unacceptable. The direction of the Women's Institute cannot be in the hands of those who belittle and insult women and LGTBI people. Freedom belongs to everyone, everyone, or it belongs to no one. It is especially serious at a time when we see the rights of the LGTBI community receding in the Community of Madrid and threatened in other communities governed by the alliance of the right and extreme right.", has said Sumar the social network X.

"Trans women do not exist"

Reactions against the new director of the Women's Institute

The MEP María Eugenia Palop, part of the executive group of Sumar, has described Isabel García as “transphobic” and has asked that his appointment be reversed. “The director of the Women's Institute cannot be a transphobe or support the delusional positions that we have suffered in recent years. Transphobia does not represent us. It does not do justice to feminism, it divides and confronts, excludes and denigrates. This appointment must be reversed”, he said in a tweet.

Also the deputy of More Madrid at the assembly of the Community of Madrid Carla Antonelli has criticized García's appointment: “The Women's Institute should be for each and every one of the women and this woman has singled out trans women, harassed and insulted us.".

The former Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, has once again criticized a decision of the Government of Pedro Sánchez. "Defending trans and LGTBI rights is a democratic obligation. More so for a Government that has the obligation to comply with and enforce Human Rights. Don't forget that there are more of us.", he pointed out before publishing in another tweet that “There is something more uncomfortable than feminism: transphobia. And ask for complicit silence”, has added Huntsman.
