Like on every March 8, Madrid has taken to the streets under the slogan “Together and strong, feminists for ever” against the discrimination and violence that women still suffer today.

Smaller protests were also held in Barcelona and other cities.

The demonstration, which was part of a series of women’s marches that have been organized worldwide and preceded by a labor strike between 12 and 12:30 p.m., has exceeded expectations with a record of attendance never seen before.

Other protests occurred throughout the world.
