Only 9 % of the people working in the construction sector are women. But working in this sector still means having to face lots of dangers. To promote the social dialogue between employers and unions, the Construction Labor Foundation was born in 1992. In the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the foundation, Madrid’s mayor Manuela Carmena declared the will to establish a recognition of innovation. This should avoid the loss of lives during the work. Recently, the campaign #yotambienconstruyo (#IalsoConstruct) has been launched to make visible the more 115,000 women who work in this field.
