Workers of the world march for IWD

International Women’s Day (IWD) was celebrated all around the world on 8 March. On the centenary of the Russian revolution of 1917 that was sparked by women workers taking action on IWD, many demonstrations highlighted how much more work is still needed to achieve gender equality whether in the workplace or in wider society. In the Asia Pacific region there were major events in Turkey, Lebanon, Pakistan (see here and here), India (see here, here, here and here), South Korea, Indonesia, The Philippines, and Australia. Demonstrations and actions were also held in many other parts of the world, see here and here.
