The feminist strike took place in Geneva on Monday.

Trente ans après la première grève des femmes elles ont de nouveau occupé les rues de Suisse ce lundi. Avec des revendications anciennes toujours aussi actuelles: égalité salariale, équité au niveau des rentes et accès à des places en crèche.

Mais avec de nouvelles également, portées en particulier par la jeune génération qui, en ce 14 juin, a fait vibrer les cortèges d’une formidable énergie. Exigeant le respect de l’intégrité physique et morale de chacune.
