I belong to the feminist movement since the seventies, and since the mid eighties I have been 
working in a Spanish feminist group called ‘Forum de Política Feminista’.  
Professionally I research on applied economics, particularly on comparative tax-benefit systems 
and their distributional and gender effects. The Institute for Fiscal Studies (Ministry of Finance, 
Spain) accepted, in November 2004, my proposal of ‘officially’ consider an area of research on 
Gender and Fiscal Policies. Since then I (‘openly’) work in that area were, in addition to my per-
sonal research work, I organise debates, elaborate reports and propose reforms of public policies.  
Some of my research topics:  
? Gender bias in tax-benefit systems: In particular, I analyse the effects of actual systems 
on labour supply of married women and the consequences of regulations which are 
based on the family (and which neglect women needs) on women lives. Proposal for re-
form: See below. 
? Engendering Statistics: I work for the breakdown by sex of all indicators related to indi-
viduals; new indicators and specific studies in order to assess the different situation of 
women and men, the specific problems of women and the gender bias in public policies.  
? Gender Budgeting process: In Spain there is a law by which all legislative propositions 
presented by the Government to the Parliament should be accompanied by a gender 
impact assessment report (Law 30/2003). This also includes the annual Public Budget 
Law. However, the implementation of this law is going very slow for the moment and 
much work should be done to incorporate gender budgeting to the regular activity of the 
Government. 
? Representation of women: Surveys and research on the situation of women in public and 
private sectors, as well as on the imbalances in housework made by men and by wo-
men. 
Activities to involve a broader public:  
? From the Institute for Fiscal Studies: Organization of conferences and debates on Gen-
der and Fiscal Policies; Training courses; Publications 
? From the civil society (experience I would like to share with you): ‘Civic Platform for Non 
- transferable Paternity Leave’.
