Crowds Rally Worldwide for Int’l Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women

HeadlineNov 27, 2017
H5 womenmarch

Women across the world took to the streets on Saturday on the annual International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Crowds poured into the streets in Peru, Mexico, France, Sweden, Spain, Mozambique and other countries to protest femicide, rape and sexual harassment. In Turkey, thousands of women clashed with police in Istanbul during the protest.

Aysegul Doker: “They do not even let this [march] happen. They cannot even tolerate this. They don’t want us, the women, to be free. But we will not leave the streets, as long as we can.”

Fatos Ocal “First, the government needs to stop their discriminating policies, even supported by laws, against women, because woman will always say no to this.”
