How the world celebrated International Women’s Day

Marches and protests held Friday across the globe to mark International Women’s Day under the slogan #BalanceforBetter have called for a more gender-balanced world.

The day, sponsored by the United Nations since 1975, celebrates women’s achievements and aims to further their rights.

Thousands of women walked off the job in Spain, joining millions more around the world demanding equality amid a persistent salary gap, violence and widespread inequality.
