Swiss women protest nationwide for equality

Swiss women are participating in a 24-hour nationwide protest to highlight the country&apos;s poor record on gender equality and the gender pay gap.

On average, in full-time employment, Swiss women earn 19.6% less than men.

According to CNN, the movement includes women from trade unions, feminist groups and women&apos;s rights organizations.

As a sign of solidarity, some parliamentarians joined the strike, while other MPs wore purple which has been designated as the official color of the movement.
