This plenary of international scholars will examine the development and transformations that Equality Public Policies have introduced in the field of citizenship, gender relations and education in Spain. From its beginnings in the 80s, the young Spanish democracy developed policies that supported gender equality as a consubstantial part of democracy. The speakers will first analyze the role of the European Union and women’s movements in the implementation of gender equality. Next, they will examine Gender Equality Laws in Spain, and the changes they have introduced in Spanish society. Finally, they will analyze the development of Gender Studies in Spanish Academia.
