Gender in numbers
Main features of the women and men who live in Barcelona: age, household structure, origins and so on.
Current structure of the labour market based on data on activity, employment, unemployment, job quality, salary etc., highlighting the work reality of women compared to men.
Tasks involving household-maintenance and looking after dependent individuals. Essential work, traditionally carried out by women, practically alone, and poorly valued from social and economic points of view.
Data on the numerous aspects of poverty that affect the way in which women suffer differently from precariousness, vulnerability and exclusion.
Participation in organisations, associations, institutional spaces and so on. Information and data on the presence of men and women in the public arena.
Gender is relevant in the state of health of women and men: life expectancy, state of health, healthy habits, sexual and reproductive health etc.
Besides access to education and level of education, the composition of non-compulsory studies needs to be observed according to branch and sex if we are to identify the existence of gender inequalities in the field of education.
Women play an active and key role in cultural activities in the city and this needs to be known and recognised. Of course, the recovery of historical memory is especially important for bringing visibility to women’s contributions to our society.
Gender violence is a key component of gender discrimination and a serious expression of the structural inequality that exists between men and women.
Barcelona’s neighbourhoods and the overall city have very specific features that determine the lifestyles, health and the very freedom of their residents according to gender.
