Big difference in pay between men and women in Andalucia

Feminism Takes To The Streets Of Spain With Massive Marches To Advance Towards Equality
Madrid Spain; 03.08.2022.- Feminism takes to the streets of Spain with massive marches to advance towards equality. It has been two years since the feminist movement took to the streets. The pandemic prevented massive demonstrations, although not the claim of rights, which has not stopped in these years. This March 8, International Women's Day. In almost all of Spain, two different demonstrations have been organized: the majority, which supports gender self-determination and the trans law of the socialist government in coalition with Podemos (Left), and that of the so-called classic feminists, the most minority current, which is against this law and who supports the abolition of prostitution.

Disparities in pay between men and women in Andalucia vary by over 15% depending on province.

While the gap is just 12.5% in Almeria, it rises to as much as 28.3% in Huelva.

And while the difference in salary in Malaga (19.8%) is close to the national average of 20.05% it means men make €20,003 per year, while women get €15,992.

The most alarming statistic however, is that across Spain the pay gap appears to be widening, with the Gestha trade union claiming it grew by €120 between 2020 and 2021.
