Spanish Economy Minister Nadia Calvino refused to take part in a photo when she realised she was the only woman in the group, making good on a promise made three months ago.

Calvino declined to be photographed when she was about to enter an event organized by Madrid’s employers federation, saying she wanted to comply with a previous pledge to only appear in pictures that include other women, the government news agency EFE reported.
