    Several hundred people, mostly women, earlier rallied on Saturday in Nice, Lille, and Strasbourg, as a preamble to International Women's Day on 8 March.

    Women's rights groups are gathering in Paris to call for more equal rights, and to demand an end to sexual harassment, sexism, and violence.

    The protest takes place one day ahead of International Women's Day​, with more rallies expected during the holiday itself.

    8 March - International Women's Day, is a day of women's solidarity in the struggle for equality. The holiday gained prominence in the twentieth century.
