The introduction of women into the paid workforce was an important step forward in the fight for feminism with the attainment of women’s economic independence. With this economic independence, new possibilities opened up. However, once in the labour market, new patterns of discrimination factors such as wage inequalities, the direct relationship of women with certain commercial activities, and the non-remuneration of domestic work.
In this conference, we will look at socialist feminist policies on the labour market and the European Directive on Gender Violence in Spain. Spain is one of the countries that, in recent years, has made the most progress in the fight against gender inequalities in the world of work, taking 4th place with 76.4% (full equality) behind only Sweden, the Netherlands and Denmark and above the European average (70.2%). Lately, the pandemic and the opportunity of teleworking have posed a new challenge for the feminist struggle in the world of work.
Thus, the situation of women in the workplace is one of the areas where we have the most opportunities to continue progressing.
