  1. Great…. but maybe taxpayers’ money should be used to teach the ladies practical/needed skills to get a job to reduce spain’s high unemployment and increase family income. We can change “Macho” mentalities after that – but in Mediterranean countries it will take generations.

  2. B.of S. What is a more “practical/needed skill” than plumbing or electrical work? What would you prefer, nice girly skills like hair and nail care? Some people might feel safer with a lady in the house, fixing their boiler or air conditioning. A lady friend of our family is a driving instructor, she is so busy (because she is a woman) that she’s fighting customers off with a baseball bat.
