(Women's Day) Indians rail against sexual violence by men

Thursday, March 08, 2018

Hundreds of women have held street plays and marched in the Indian capital to highlight domestic violence, sexual attacks and discrimination in jobs and wages on International Women’s Day.

They carried placards reading, "Unite against violence against Women,” "Man enough to say no to domestic abuse,” and "My body, My choice.”

Violent crime against women has been on the rise in India despite tough laws enacted by the government.

Office workers, school teachers and sex workers were among those participating in the 2-kilometer march, which ended near Parliament.-AP
