MONTEIRO, Rosa; AGOSTINHO, Luísa  and  DANIEL, Fernanda. Un diagnóstico de la desigualdad de género en un municipio de Portugal: estructuras y representaciones. Rev. Adm. Pública [online]. 2015, vol.49, n.2, pp.423-446. ISSN 0034-7612.

The paper presents a part of the results of an organizational diagnosis with gender perspective, included in a wider project of an Equality Plan in a Portuguese City Counsil. It addressed the issue of gender inequality in two dimensions. Their presence in the structures of human resources, and how their city workers represent the gender (in)equality, expressed in their attitudes regarding gender roles in the public and private spheres. Quantitative analysis was performed both on documents and secondary data provided by the local authority, also on primary data resulted from the application of a questionnaire survey. It was concluded that there are expressions of inequality in phenomena such as occupational and vertical segregation, and that there is a small (ac)knowledgement of the inequality and discrimination phenomena.

Keywords : gender (in)equalities; organizations; equality plan; organizational diagnosis; municipalities..
