9:05 pm
recognizing that as long as united states is pursuing this maximum pressure campaign against you are as long as it continues to violate a nuclear deal and punish countries like germany and others for trying to abide by the nuclear deal there is likely going to be a lot of tensions in the region if we won detentions the result as trump himself says that he wants to go back to the negotiating table when the passage in negotiating table is actually very simple start respecting the nuclear deal and then build new negotiations on talk that would trump is doing is that he's ruining and wrecking all previous agreements and then wants others to how really confident to go shadings able to meet him even though he has completely destroyed his own credibility by going after these existing. deals. and frankly violating u.n. security council resolution. now is take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world workers across

switzerland have taken to the streets to demand greater equality they've blocked traffic marched with baddest band pots and pans and plenty of singing. nearly 20 percent less than a man and now they say it's time that changed. the lives of protest for equality women all across which will and walked off the job on friday afternoon they're calling for equal pay time and respect. what it says off that so we're really behind our european neighbors when it comes to ensuring that women are able to do their jobs whether it's school hours the high cost of daycare or the lack of paternity leave. this walkout was modeled on the women's strike of 991 when about half a 1000000 women protested in switzerland as a result an equal opportunity act and maternity leave were enshrined in law 28
9:10 pm
years later there's still a long way to go gender discrimination sexism and unequal treatment in the workplace are common even though equality has been guaranteed by the swiss constitution since 1981 women are still disadvantaged in many areas including wages. but the doing good to let me read it go on strong concerts and so it's true that today he's incredible so many people run it people of all generations from old industry as students retired people and i think they really will be a post june 14th says an increased awareness of this issue. simone at. a member of the federal council and head of switzerland's department of environment transport energy and communications says the protesters have legitimate demands that oh well we seem to get them in the short just don't want to there are things
9:11 pm
that have changed but equal to. still doesn't exist i think that's a scandal so it's important that women have a presence and that they're supported by name because these are demands that concerned women men and families. protesters are loud and clear in calling for equal let's see. let's get more on this from d.w. before you bring him. her widespread to strike but it's quite widespread geographically this strike is happening all across switzerland as we have here a map that shows that this is not just happening in towns but also in small villages and as we heard in our report women here we can see the different purple dots that show the different cities in different places as you can see it's quite spread out across switzerland and as these purple dots women are indeed wearing
9:12 pm
purple too to draw attention to their protests this is also not this is a protest that cuts through all generations there are many women one of whom we spoke to today who participated in the strike back in 1901 many of these women are back on the streets today they say some progress has been made but it's just not enough but there are also many younger generations who weren't even born back in 1901 there are taking to the streets and fighting for their rights there are many different ways that women are protesting and making their voices heard some are working less hours to symbolize the 20 percent pay gap highlighted also in our report. this 20 percent pay gap and this is also a strike organized largely on social media and this is also a place where women are making themselves heard with has text trending in both french and german the $2.00 main languages in switzerland also on twitter we saw a trend on once once again that the issue is is the quality exactly but this women
9:13 pm
say that it is a. especially economic inequality that they're facing swiss women earn less than men on average they get lower pensions and they do the majority of unpaid work there is one tweet that we have here tweeted by a microbiologist at the university of luzon who explained explains why she is on strike she says it is to fight against these numbers why 50 while 56 percent of our ph d. students are women 81 of our professors are men in my faculty where the woman disappears after graduation she asks but also another key discrepancy of and one of the key reasons for this discrepancy is child rearing having children in switzerland still remains to be remains to be something that has a much bigger impact on women. than men it's known as the motherhood penalty and the women that are striking in switzerland are saying there needs to be more done and one of the main things that needs to be done is to allow men to take time off
9:14 pm
when they have children currently men get only one paid day off when their partner has a child just one day and then that leaves the majority of the word than to be done by the women which has an effect on their career ok so the thought might be a little extreme but these are the problems are not unique to switzerland on absolutely not in europe gender disparity is still still a thing however iceland norway and sweden currently rack rank top in the world for gender parity according to a report released by the world economic forum and this report looks at factors like economic participation health empowerment and education but you're right in every country a lot more needs to be done to ensure that women aren't discriminated against just for their gender abraham thank you. when it comes to women's safety india's capital delhi has a poor reputation attacks on women are also commonplace and taking public transport is a particular challenge in an attempt to improve the situation the government wants

to offer women free travel on buses on the metro. getting ready for a day of work irani done owns a living as a cook and eat in a private home in central data. she has to ensure she leaves home on time every morning just. her commute involves a 10 minute walk. navigating the daleys traffic. in order to catch a bus she only just makes it today. it's not an easy right. the bus is absolutely packed there's no air conditioning despite the blistering summer heat. granny is lucky today she actually gets a seat she spends the equivalent of about $15.00 to $17.00 u.s. dollars a month on the tickets it's a hefty sum for her. but he says the worst part of
9:16 pm
a daily 45 minute commute is facing rampant had a cement and believe. me. here we face so much sexual harassment men deliberately press up against you the shameless often you don't get a seat at male passengers occupied the sates reserved for women they refused to budge you have to fight to get it then there are pickpockets there are just so many hassles but i have no choice i have to get to work. but there may actually be a choice for women like rani in future. the delhi government says it plans to make all publicly funded buses as well as the metro free for women. delhi's metro network is often hailed as a game changer in the city's bid to expand public transport. it's a far cry from the bumpy buses on the city streets. there's even a dedicated compartment for women. it's widely considered the safest mode of
9:17 pm
transport. but tickets aren't cheap. following say hikes last year authorities say women now make up just 30 percent of metro commuters that could change if the free rides become a reality the delhi government says its proposal to make public transport free for women would go a long way towards improving their safety in the city the argument is that accessible modes of transport will encourage more women to join the workforce and also allow them access to public spaces dominated by men. but on the streets of delhi opinions a shop be divided over the move. i think it's a good move for women right now so many working women have to pay so much on just commuting than an hour they hate i don't believe this is a great decision this is told to rise this issue you shouldn't so on c.c.t.v. cameras and so flag back if it filling please
9:18 pm
a woman safety nor does making transport for your cost. i think it's unfair for men because. they will have to pay more because they're woman travelling free for women like rani who free public transport could be empowering. the 40 year old has never written on the metro but she says she would consider joy right when i'm going to visit free of course i'd love to try it it would certainly be the just thing on the bus. granny's convinced that free rights will definitely get more women like her out of the home adding to an enhanced sense of safety in numbers. drugs and chemicals company. the p.r. offensive to counter a growing criticism of its weed killer roundup and its controversial life estate the company says it has listened and understood and will find
