Demonstrations and rallies are being held across several countries as the world celebrates International Women's Day with the theme #PressforProgress.
Thousands of women from all over the world joined the three-day journey from Istanbul to the Turkey-Syria border to raise awareness about the suffering of women imprisoned by the Syrian regime.
An initiative to show solidarity with imprisoned Syrian women will take place on March 8, International Women's Day. Nearly 150 buses will travel from Istanbul to the Turkey-Syria border, carrying 6,536 scarves representing the female prisoners.
Protesters used art and civil disobedience to draw attention to the wide range of problems women face - from FGM to domestic violence to the gender pay gap.
Organisers behind the Women's March are advocating for a Day Without a Woman on March 8. They are encouraging women to go on a day's strike so their absence drives home their impact on the labour force and the business community.
