8,000 women joined the annual “Million Women Rise” International Women’s Day march on 6 March, according to organisers. That’s 3,000 more than last year.

Women travelled from Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bradford, Cornwall, Leeds, Lincoln, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford, Ireland and Wales, among many other places, to demand an end to male violence against women and children. One placard read: “It’s more dangerous to be a woman than a soldier.” Hundreds of other IWD events took place around the country.
