Rome (IP)- Italians went on strike on International Women's Day in Rome.

Iran PressEurope: On Wednesday, tens of thousands of Italians, with the call of trade unions, did not show up at work in protest of "increasing violence against women, wage inequality, exploitation, and anti-immigrant and racist policies" in this country. This nationwide strike paralyzed various Italian public and private sectors for 24 hours.
