Balearic Island sisters are doing it for themselves


The economic empowerment of women across the world is one of the most remarkable revolutions of the past 50 years. This is echoed by the latest figures which reveal that almost 34.2 per cent of self-employed workers in the Balearic Islands are women.
The national average is 34 per cent of the total of 1.7 million selfemployed workers in Spain, according to a survey.
The sector with most self-employed women is healthcare, with 72 per cent of the total.
Women account for 63 per cent of hairdressers and 54 per cent in the education sector, but only 7 per cent in transport and 15 per cent in the agricultural sector.
