Date and Place: February, 13th – Milan, Italy
Hundreds of thousands of women gathered in cities across Italy yesterday to protest at Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's sexism. Thousands of protesters marched in more than 200 towns and cities nationwide. Protests were also held in Brussels, Madrid, Lisbon, Paris, Lyon and Toulouse in France, and as far as Tokyo.
Sunday's protests had a title - Se non ora, quando? (If not now, when?) - designed to express the frustration of Italian women about the Prime Minister’s consideration of women.
We are asking all women to defend the value of our dignity, and we are asking men, if not now, when? organisers said on the protest website.
