8M in the city’s neighbourhoods, districts and facilities

Barcelona City Council is marking this year’s International Women’s Day with the slogan “Breaking the glass ceiling”, to combat the segregation which prevents women from accessing positions of responsibility in the professional sphere and which sustains gender stereotypes and traditional models. Barcelona will be marking the occasion in full, with numerous activities all around the city: themed cycles, lectures, workshops, concerts and more.
