Women across Switzerland are striking for equal pay

Women across Switzerland are striking for equal pay

(CNN Business)Swiss women are striking en masse on Friday, in a 24-hour nationwide protest to highlight the country’s poor record on gender equality and the gender pay gap.

The umbrella movement — which encompasses women from trade unions, feminist groups and women’s rights organizations — argues that one of the world’s richest nations has given half of its population a poor deal.
Minutes after midnight, the first protesters took to the streets under the demonstration’s motto: “Pay, time, respect,” kicking off a day of events aimed at drawing attention to a gaping divide in gender equality across the workplace and the home.
