Equality before the law, Spanish style

The punishment for a crime, subject to mitigation, should be identical where the crimes are identical, yes?

Not in Spain:

"The Constitutional Court has approved the controversial Gender Violence Law, which allows judges to impose harsher sentences on men convicted of domestic violence against their partners than a woman would face for the same crime".

Clearly the average man has greater physical strength than the average woman, but a broken nose is a broken nose is a broken nose, whether inflicted by Carmen or by Don José.

A lot of DV is against males in Inglaterra, perhaps we are simply not as macho as our latin friends.
