Gender fairness is a principle of social and political justice aimed at eliminating inequalities between men and women and at recognising the gender differences that enrich us.

Barcelona City Council is launching a gender mainstreaming strategy so that all its actions work in favour of gender equity. A gender perspective is therefore being introduced into the running and organisation of the City Council and into all the policies being implemented from the city and its districts.
