Jose Ignacio Munilla, Bishop of San Sebastian criticised the strike on his radio show, saying some feminism is harmful and promotes a "gender ideology".
Munilla said feminism split in the 1960s into "authentic, feminine feminism" and "destructive feminism manipulated by gender ideology". He said that radical feminism had been infiltrated by demons.
He criticised "egalitarianism feminism," which he said "establishes that men and women are the same and that differences are due to sociological reasons".
Although he admitted that moderate feminism is a "just cause", the spokesperson for the strike has criticised the church leader.
Maria Alvarez said: "The Bishop's comments are another attempt to try to discredit women on the part of reactionary forces just when we are building up to a historic movement."
His main grievance is abortion which he calls ' el holocausto femenino'.
