How do I hide an element using jQuery?

I am trying to hide a particularly stubborn element through jQuery but I am not succeding.


If you scroll towards the bottom of the page there are several similar items. Each has two buttons below: "Approfondisci" and "Scopri i relatori". Basically I want every first button with text: "Approfondisci" in it to be hidden always.

The code I am trying to use is:
jQuery( ".speakers" ).each(function( index ) {
    jQuery('.speaker .speaker-content .btn:nth-child(1)').hide();

Open in new window

I even separately tried via css: a:contains('Approfondisci'){display:none;}
but that doesn't work either.

What am I doing wrong? Please assist.

Thanks in advance

this works (tested in Chrome Dev Tools console):
$("div.speaker-content > a.btn:contains('Approfondisci')").hide();

Open in new window
