Many trains in Spain have been cancelled as workers prepare to strike to highlight gender inequalities on International Women's Day.

Three-hundred trains will not be operating on Thursday, the country's transport ministry announced.

A 24-hour strike, called by 10 unions, has been the subject of much debate.

Feminist groups have also asked women to spend no money and to ditch their domestic chores for the day. But some have come out against the strike.

The ruling centre-right party, the Partido Popular (PP), said the action was "for feminist elites and not real women with everyday problems".
