National Women's Strike demonstrations held over weekend
There were other demonstrations over the weekend. Thousands of women marched in Lausanne, Geneva, Nyon and Vevey as part of the national women’s strike.
They carried banners with feminist slogans, as well as environmental demands and anti-racism messages.
Several protested topless from the bridges in Lausanne.
A further 2,000 met on the plaine de Plainpalais in Geneva. A cry went up at 3.24pm, which is symbolic as the time women are no longer paid due to the 20% pay-gap between men and women.
