The Fragility of Gender Equality Policies in Spain

29.07.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

Even though Spain has become a model in legislative policies for gender equality at the international level, the economic crisis has led to a growth in inequality, which has revealed the weaknesses of the adopted instruments.This article discusses the situation of gender equality and women´s rights in Spain, and highlights the report issued in 2015 by the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). It emphasises on the importance achieving gender justice based on three elements—distribution, identity, and representation—and a real parity democracy.
