Women in Italy hold anti-Berlusconi rallies

Italian women have been holding nationwide protests against embattled Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

Event organiser Sara Ventrone spoke of the ''anger'' and ''frustration'' felt by women in Italy at the way they were represented.

They say Mr Berlusconi has demeaned women by his recent run of sex scandals, and want him to resign.

He has denied any wrongdoing, saying the current investigations against him are politically motivated.
