Photo Brief: Street Solidarity for International Women’s Day
Montreal was the site of multiple demonstrations marking International Women’s Day this weekend, including a march of dozens of women that began at Concordia—pictured below—and a second demonstration of nearly 400 people on March 8 to mark the global day of action.
“I attended because inequality has become apparent in all avenues of our society; as a woman, it is my duty to fight against injustice and violence perpetuated against women,” said Concordia student Katie Nelson, who took part in both the March 7 demonstration and Saturday’s afternoon protest.
“Remaining silent is not an option when faced with the crisis that is gender-specific sexism, rape culture and violence.”
