Sánchez announces a law that will force parity in company councils

Date: March 20, 2023 Time: 19:47:25

The Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez, has announced that the next Council of Ministers will approve a new Law on equal representation between men and women. The highest representative of the Executive, on the occasion of an act of the PSOE on Women’s Day, has reported that the norm uses “zipper lists in the electoral law, parity in the Council of Ministers of the Government and parity in the administration councils of the country’s large companies”, as well as in the governing boards of professional associations and in the juries of public recognition. The latter, so that “what happened to Nadia Calviño does not happen, that every time she goes to give an award, the jury is only made up of men”, he ironized.

The also general secretary of the Socialists congratulated himself during his speech on the importance of starting up the quota system. “Before, photos full of men and no women seemed to mean there were no valid women, so we pushed the quotas up.” He has signed that in Spain, during the Popular Party government stage, the average presence of women on company boards of directors was “only 13%”. “Now, we have passed 37% in private firms and more than 30% in public ones; we still have to improve,” he added. “These are systems that allow us to reduce historical inequalities,” said Sánchez, to recall that in the Spanish Parliament women deputies already represent 46% of the total of the Cortes Generales.
