Spain has been usually characterised by high unemployment rates. Particularly, the economic crises of the last years has largely affected the young people and the adult people with a
lack of ICT skills. Portugal had also very high levels of unemployment despite the improvement in the latest years. In terms of gender employment gap in Europe, Portugal and
Germany are below the EU average, on the other hand Spain is over the EU showing larger gap between genders (Eurostat, 2018). Besides, the women’s work conditions are
significantly worse than the men’s one (OECD, 2017) https://ewomeninict.eu/
