The new Gender Justice Plan for 2021-2025 focuses on fighting against gender inequalities from intersectionality, territoriality and proximity; always guaranteeing the incorporation of the gender perspective in all municipal policies. In short, it is a question of consolidating the institutional change that was begun in the previous plan, starting from its achievements and lessons learned and continuing with the desire to be the municipal instrument for the elimination of gender inequalities in the city.

The plan, promoted by the 4th Department of Social Rights, Global Justice, Feminism and LGTBI and the Directorate of Gender and Time Policies of the City Council, has been drawn up on the basis of a broad participatory process, both with the public and with feminist organisations in the city, political and technical profiles of the entire council and all the districts of the city.

Furthermore, the plan has been defined in a context characterised by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, with an impact on gender inequality that has yet to be quantified. For this reason, the plan addresses this impact in all its areas, from the point of view of flexibility and the will to adapt to the reality that may be configured.

Like the previous plan, the new document is structured into four strategic pillars, each with its corresponding areas and objectives. The 2021-2023 execution programme includes 378 actions.

Pillar 1. Institutional Change
This is a working pillar focused on the internal functioning of the City Council to promote good governance in terms of gender equality. It is aimed at consolidating the organisational change that was outlined in the previous Gender Justice Plan in order to guarantee the incorporation of the gender perspective in the institution’s functioning, practices, public management instruments and culture.

It includes up to 13 areas of action with different objectives such as overcoming the ‘gender knowledge gap’ in the collection and processing of internal and external data; the incorporation of the gender perspective in municipal plans, programmes and regulations; ensuring gender parity in municipal decision-making; continuing to assess the gender impact of the municipal budget; and advancing in the application of gender clauses in municipal contracts, among others.

Pillar 2. Economics for Life and Time Management
This pillar aims to achieve a fairer and more sustainable economic model, pursuing the promotion of an economy at the service of people that guarantees the economic and material living conditions of women and recognises all the work necessary for the subsistence, reproduction and well-being of people, as well as their co-responsible assumption of their responsibilities. Therefore, it also aims to address the feminisation of poverty and precariousness and the new expressions of poverty and precariousness that may arise from the socio-economic crisis resulting from COVID-19, with a focus on the fight against the digital gender gap and women’s access to ICT industries. Finally, this pillar also focuses on promoting a healthier, more egalitarian and efficient management of the use of time, by means of strategies that have an impact on improving the daily lives of citizens and reducing social and gender inequalities.

Pillar 3. City of Rights
The City of Rights pillar claims the city as a space for the defence and guarantee of human rights and women’s rights. For this reason, it aims to address policies that have an impact on the economic, social and cultural aspects in which gender inequalities occur. This pillar is also structured in 13 areas, including Housing, Sports, Culture and collective memory, Sexual and gender diversity, Masculinities, Social and political participation, etc.

Pillar 4. Protective and Sustainable Neighbourhoods
The last pillar of the plan focuses on promoting neighbourhoods and urban spaces that place everyday life at the centre, making it more comfortable and fairer, more egalitarian, safer and more sustainable. This is approached from 5 areas: Ecology and sustainability, Urban space, Mobility, Prevention and safety, and Proximity: services and facilities in the neighbourhoods.
