The Equality Commission

The Commission for Equality met this Wednesday in an extraordinary session to address the sexual assaults registered in the Balearic Islands in recent months. The President of the Government, Margalida Prohens, chaired this first meeting.

Prohens reiterated that “the Government will reinforce its resources against sexist violence” and, in reference to the cases of sexual assaults recorded in recent months, said that in this regard there will be “zero tolerance and maximum forcefulness against acts that in no way represent either tourism in the Balearic Islands, or our popular festivals, or leisure”.

Apart from the President of the Government, the meeting was attended by the Councillor for Families and Social Affairs, Catalina Cirer; the Director of the Balearic Women’s Institute (IBDONA), Cati Salom, and representatives from different ministries, the four councils, town councils, the Spanish Government Delegation, the State Security Forces and Corps and the High Court of Justice.

The Commission for Equality is the body responsible for coordinating the policies and programmes carried out by the regional, island and local administrations in the area of equality of women and men (Article 20 of Law 11/2016). The Commission, which has a cross-cutting nature and is attached to IBDONA, last met in December 2021.
