This year, March 8, International Women's Day marks the twenty-five years of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, which since 1995 constitutes the most ambitious plan to fight and achieve the rights of girls and women. Ten years have also elapsed since the creation of UN Women, the United Nations organization dedicated to promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women, created to accelerate the progress and improvement of the living conditions of women in the world. At the European level, the 2030 Agenda adopted in 2015 represents a declaration of principles to achieve sustainable progress, in turn, egalitarian and inclusive, not in vain, the fifth objective of sustainable development (SDG) refers to the Equality of Gender.
The CSIC supports all these declarations of principles and shares the underlying objective of all: effective gender equality. The CSIC is no stranger to the reality that the stereotypes and gender roles that permeate our social system are likely to reproduce in the workplace through vertical segregation, glass roof or the wage gap, for example.
Therefore, it is essential to continue working to achieve gender equality in all areas, whether social, economic and / or labor, with the aim of building an inclusive, fairer and more effective institution, achieving real and effective gender equality, for which it is necessary the commitment of all the people who are part of the CSIC.
