Observatorios Share


Equality Observatories are specialist bodies in matters regarding gender and equal opportunities whose main aim is to assess, analyse, evaluate and transmit all the information relating to cross-cutting gender equality-based policies, which are being implemented in the various Ministerial Departments, regional organisations and other public and private bodies. The strategic objectives of the Equal Opportunities Plan (2008-2011) include consolidating, strengthening and informing of the work of these observatories.

The Institute of Women oversees two gender observatories: the Equal Opportunities Observatory and the Women's Image Observatory. Mention should also be made of other observatories that are linked to other public organisations, such as the Violence against Women Observatory, part of the Ministry of Equality belonging to the Government Delegation for Gender Violence.
