Yesterday, thousands of people took to the streets of London to attend the #March4Women for International Women’s Day. This year’s focus was on the women and girls fighting climate change, with celebrities such as Natalie Dormer, Camilla Thurlow, Himesh Patel and George MacKay joining the fight for the Greta good. Here are some of the best pictures from the day.

International Women’s Day 🧡 A day to celebrate women everywhere. Whatever your upbringing, whether you were born a woman or not, wherever you are from, any race, any age, any size, any shape, mothers, sisters, friends, cousins, grandmothers, great grandmothers, stepmothers, foster mothers, all the women that fought and are no longer with us and the women who continue to fight for our rights around the world today, this day is for you 🙏🏻 You don’t have to be a boss bitch, or achieving all your goals, you don’t have to be smashing life on Instagram, or go to the best restaurants and wear the best clothes, this is about WOMEN, all women, being celebrated for who they are, whether you’re flying through life or struggling. If you’re smashing life that’s incredible, but let’s also take a moment to celebrate the women who aren’t, the women who need our help, the woman who are less fortunate, living a life of oppression and abuse 🧡 whoever you are I love and support you 🙏🏻 let’s always support each other and strive to make the world an equal place for all 💜 - - - #womensrights #womensrightsarehumanrights #internationalwomensday #iwd2020 #march4women #womensupportingwomen #womenempowerment #femaleempowerment #womensmarch2020 #womensmarch2020 #feminist #feminism #feministas #climatechange #climatechangeisreal

HAPPY #INTERNATIONALWOMENSDAY 🧡⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Today I attended #March4Women with my daughter. She was absolutely befuddled at what was going on and I was awestruck by so many women chanting for rights on various things. ⁣⁣ ⁣ See Stories 👌⁣ ⁣⁣ There was even a man with a drum although I got the impression his motive was to create a party than a protest & it worked! 😁🎉⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The march was organised by @careintuk and we walked alongside @womens_aid @womankind @actionaid before joining in with @stylismagazine and a group of over 60's known WASP, who were marching for women's pensions. They had hung their knickers on a washing a line and had them blowing in the wind throughout the march! Hilarious 🤣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So what did we learn? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ That not just women march for women's rights. There were groups of men, families, young women, old women, even a man dressed as an Irish lepricorn 🤷🏻‍♀️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ That despite the wind & rain, it's important to get out and stand up for what you believe in. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ That despite the embarrassment of an 8 year old girl because her mummy was singing & shouting, she will remember that on this day her mummy told her that she can achieve ANYTHING she wants and don't ever let anyone, man or woman, tell you you can't! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ AND that next year I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go with a community of Pivotal Women marching for change in the effects of generational trauma! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ What did you get up to today? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #iwd2020 #equalforequal #march4women #internationalwomensday #iamapivotalwoman
