Furthermore, municipal grant and subsidy campaigns enable organisations to obtain public resources for realising their projects. Evaluation criteria for current proposals include the gender perspective, both in an organisation's’ operations and in their subsidised projects. Organisations are therefore encouraged to act as allies in the objective of achieving equality between men and women in all areas.
We at Barcelona City Council are also combating the feminisation of poverty and job insecurity through innovative projects such as those in the neighbourhoods of Sants Centre, Carmel, Bon Pastor and La Verneda (Women breaking away from job insecurity Link to attached document number 4 entitled women breaking away from job insecurity). And there is also financial support for the most vulnerable, such as subsidies for paying property tax (IBI) (see the document Subsidies for paying property tax (IBI): analysis of 2017 data from the gender perspective).
Likewise, it is only by guaranteeing a job market without inequalities or gender discrimination that we can make our city just and egalitarian. The Strategy for Barcelona employment, EOB 2016-2020 also focuses on the gender perspective.
