MORE than 300 trains have been cancelled today as part of International Women’s Day strikes.

According to the transport ministry, 200 intercity and 105 long-distance trains have been cancelled.


The underground in Madrid will also be affected.

The 24-hour strike has been called by 10 unions while feminist groups have also asked women not to spend money and to stop doing their domestic chores.

All are campaigning against inequalities between men and women.

Penelope Cruz has cancelled events she had planned and will also go on ‘domestic’ strike, leaving her partner Javier Bardem to care for their two children.
