Observatorios de Igualdad
Aims and objectives
The Spanish government has set up six observatories specialised in different areas: Observatory on Sexist Advertisement; Observatory for Equal Opportunities between Men and Women; Observatory on Gender Violence ; Observatory on Women and Health ; Observatory on Women in the Army; Observatory of Women in Police Services. All of them have the duty to elaborate statistics and studies addressing gender inequality in their respective areas.
Results and impact
The work of those strutures has generated multiple reports and studies reflecting on the situation of women and has provided sex-dissagreagated statistics.
There are several Observatories attached to different Ministries.
Each observatory has the duty to elaborate statistics and studies addressing gender inequality in their respective areas. For instance, the Observatory on Women in the Army has published an annual report concerning the situation of women in the Spanish Army since 2006 See http://www.defensa.gob.es/areasTematicas/observatorio/
