The study conducted by Professor Laura Sagnier showed the difficult situation facing many working women in Spain once they become parents. Home is a major issue for the 2,400 women, who participated in the study, which discovered that despite the differences in earnings, women still pay 42 per cent of total family expenses. The study translated this into that "women who are active in the labour market spend three extra hours a day on tasks involving the family, while men spend on average less than an hour a day" on such tasks. The study highlighted that for 42 per cent of women currently working, their jobs give them no satisfaction, merely "gives them money, and if they didn't need the money they wouldn't work". Another goal is to protest against difference in the remuneration men and women receive for doing the same job.
