Hailing the role of women in science and business
07 March 2020
Feminism and women. Barcelona launches a campaign coinciding with 8 March and giving visibility to women who changed the world with inventions.
Barcelona Activa launched its #GràciesInventores campaign to coincide with 8 March. The initiative stands up for the role of women creators who have traditionally been given no visibility and continues the efforts being made to put an end to the wage gap still suffered by women today. The difference in salaries goes on, despite women’s activity in the city having risen to 75.7% (higher than the averages for Catalonia, Spain and the EU) and the drop in unemployment to 7.7%, the lowest since 2008.
