Spain's new prime minister, Pedro Sanchez, presented his Cabinet on Wednesday, which will be made up of 11 women and six men.

Sanchez said his ministers were "recognized and respected professionals who have the same vision of a progressive, modern and pro-European society" and who are open "to dialogue and consensus."

The primer minister said that his government is a "clear reflection" of the feminist movement that emerged in Spain in March, which "marked a before and after" in Spanish society.

Sanchez said he is "committed with equality," adding that his Cabinet is made up of a majority of women and that two women will head the crucially important ministries of economy and of finance.

The prime minister also said that his administration is "decidedly pro-European" because Europe is "our new homeland," the space that Spain must strengthen to address current challenges.
