Marbella town hall looking at ways of regulating hen and stag parties
Marbella has become the latest municipality to announce that it plans to introduce regulations to control behaviour at hen and stag parties. Social Rights councillor, Victoria Morales, says “women are treated as objects” at these parties and the town hall is considering different ways of controlling such events if they become “uncivilised and disruptive.”
Malaga, Torremolinos and Benalmádena have already announced that they intend to do something about hen and stag parties, which often take place in coastal resorts in Spain. The local authorities say the events are characterised by sexism, unsuitable dress and messages, and the loud music, megaphones and drunkenness constitute a public nuisance.
