The Equal Opportunities Strategic Plan (2014-2016)
The main objective is to accomplish the right to equal treatment and non-discrimination, and the principle of equal opportunities for women and men
It has three main axes: employment and the fight against wage inequality, conciliation, and co-responsibility, and the fight against gender violence.
The right to equal treatment and non-discrimination, and the principle of equal opportunities for women and men is set out in article 14 and article 9.2 of the Spanish Constitution. From that time on, and taking into account the growing presence of women in the job market, and their achievements in education and training, the need becomes apparent to approve legal measures which permit equal opportunities.
3127 million euros.
This is the first Plan to be accompanied with an Evaluation Program, which entails, among others, the selection of a series of indicators related to each one of its objectives, and which will make it possible not only to monitor the plan and its degree of implementation, but also to evaluate the results obtained.
