Currently in most of the countries have achieved legal equality between women and men, but it is increasingly clear that this recognition of rights and freedoms is not sufficient to achieve full citizenship. In the patriarchal society in which we find ourselves immersed continue to exist a marked asymmetrical relations between the sexes, so that the fact of being male or female continues to condition the possibilities for equal access to basic rights such as education, health or work.
Although women in recent years have significantly increased their presence in the workplace occupational segregation by gender is a phenomenon present in all countries regardless of their level of economic development or particular religious or cultural conditioning.
Despite progress in our country towards equality of opportunity between women and men, there are several indicators that show the persistence of gender inequality in the workplace, among them we can mention the participation rate, the unemployment rate or contractual status.
In this paper, we learn about the situation of women in the Galician labor market and to adopt measures to combat discriminatory practices that have important consequences for both women economically and socially and impede their access to employment conditions equality.
