“The issue of wage equality and gender gap is always a topical issue – says Marano -.
For this reason, in the Sicilian Regional Assembly I filed a bill on combating the gender pay gap (ddl 727 of 15.04.20).
The event aims to dissect the current situation and highlight the reasons for the difference in conditions and treatment between men and women in various fields of social life, from politics to the economy, from culture to sport, which with current trends could be closed , according to the global Gender Gap report 2021, in 135.6 years.
We need to redesign the role of women, move away from ancient cultural and social legacies and review the relationship that binds men, considering that, despite the best results in education and training, women continue to be penalized in the world of work and career professional “, concludes Marano.
