Many trains in Spain have been cancelled as workers prepare to strike to highlight gender inequalities on International Women’s Day.
Three-hundred trains will not be operating on Thursday, the country’s transport ministry announced.
Feminist groups have also asked women to spend no money and to ditch their domestic chores for the day. But some have come out against the strike.
The ruling centre-right party, the Partido Popular said the action was “for feminist elites and not real women with everyday problems”.
Actress and model Penelope Cruz has cancelled planned public events and will go on “domestic” strike.Please subscribe to our newsletter
