In the same vein, Minister Alcorta said: “Today we are taking another step that is important, significant, symbolic, not only for women but for all people who move by public transport. Being able to be in the wallets, in the pockets, in the wallets of the Argentines is a great step so that all people in situations of violence know that they are not alone, that we have teams of professionals from the 144 line available 24 hours a day to accompany them”.
