International Women’s Day was celebrated around the world on Friday with each country sharing its own message.

In India where several high profile cases shone a spotlight on women’s rights recently, over 100 women marched in the capital, New Delhi, calling on the government to do more to protect them.

In South Africa, hundreds of drummers played on a busy Johannesburg street with the message that violence against women should stop.

While the song ‘One Woman’ featuring artists from all over the world, has been released to mark the occasion. It is a rallying cry for women’s rights and gender equality.
