last minute on the demonstrations of 8m

Two demonstrations early on Wednesday morning, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, have collapsed at the entrances to Barcelona. The two mobilizations on Avenida Meridiana and Avenida Diagonal, at the height of Zona Universitaria, have caused kilometric queues of vehicles that prevent access to the Catalan capital.

Women represent 40% of the video game sector in Spain. This is indicated by the recent study published by ArsGames and the Association of Women Filmmakers and Audiovisual Media (CIMA), the CIMA 2022 Report. A priori it seems good news: women in the electronic entertainment sector practically occupy half of the positions of work. Isn’t this a good indication, then, of the approach to parity? As usual, the crumb is found in the fine print and in other percentages of the study that indicate that 59% of the players hide their gender on the Internet to avoid harassment or that 40% of the companies in the industry do not have protocols against harassment and/or discrimination.

Reports Marc Brugat.

This Wednesday, March 8, International Women’s Day, several rallies and demonstrations have been called in the city of Valencia to demand a more egalitarian society.
