London’s streets are extra busy today, as campaign activists march through Central London to demonstrate against sexual harassment and the gender pay gap.
The capital’s Women’s March 2018 is one of many taking place across the globe this weekend. With stronger support than ever, the march reflects the current mood surrounding the topic of sexual harassment.
The annual march comes following a string of sexual accusations against Hollywood celebrities like Harvey Weinstein, as well as global #metoo campaigns and a powerful speech on female empowerment, held by Oprah Winfrey at this year’s Golden Globe Awards.
The #TimesUp is trending on Twitter, with people posting photos of signs and crowds from the march, and tweets of support.
