International Women's Day

Yesterday, Wednesday, March 8, people around the world celebrated International Women's Day. This year, many women's ways of commemorating the holiday were by participating in the Day Without Women strike, which took place in cities around the world.

Women marched and rallied, protesting the inequality that still plagues women of all ages, races and backgrounds. These are some of the best pictures from the day.
