This is so cool! Protesters took the streets of London for the March4Women event and you just have to see these powerful pictures!
Check out yet another incredible protest going on in the world! CARE International organized the March4Women rally on London’s Southbank on Sunday, Mar. 5. The organization created the march because, “Our world today is still shockingly unequal. But we believe we can achieve gender equality if we join together to stand up and speak out. CARE International’s #March4Women brings people together to end the injustice of gender inequality, and help make a more equal world – for everyone.”
The march concluded over the famous Tower Bridge where people gathered to show their support for gender equality around the world. Famous faces like Annie Lennox, Emile Sandé, Mel C, Bianca Jagger, Natasha Beningfield, and the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan all walked with the march. “We’ve been banging this drum for a long, long time. I welcome anybody that comes here, men and women,” Annie told the crowd. The pictures of the people gathered on the iconic bridge are incredibly powerful.

Annie talked about the video of President Donald Trump, 70, prior to the election that revealed the future president speaking vulgarly about women. “It actually became very real for them, because when someone says ‘It’s just locker room talk’, actually don’t we think it’s time that we should address that particularly if they’re the leading representative of one of the biggest most influential countries in the world?” she asked.
The President-to-be was on a bus with Extra‘s Billy Bush when he talked about attempting to come on to women and used the now infamous phrase, “Grab them by the p***y.” “So that made women very angry, that made the issue very clear for them,” Annie told the crowds, “but actually what we’re saying is that the issue is huge, looking at the developing world, that is just the tip of the iceberg.
