The new regulations will tackle how industry views on the value of women in the workplace and help women exercise their rights, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, Diaz said.

The government, which wants to overcome a chronic gender wage gap, says women in Spain earn on average 22 percent less than their male peers.

Equality Minister Irene Montero said the government’s message is that “women must be paid the same as men for doing the same jobs.”

The left-wing coalition, which came to power in January, has made bolstering women’s rights a cornerstone of its political program, and tougher sexual violence laws are also in the works.
