Donning garments to match the dress code of pink, purple and white, hundreds of women and men joined the Women's March Jakarta 2017 on Saturday. Starting at 9 a.m., they marched along the streets of Jakarta, from Sarinah shopping center to the State Palace.
Initiated by 33 different organizations, the march aimed to address eight issues, which included tolerance, diversity and health rights for women, eliminating violence against women, protecting living environments and female workers, improving the representation of women in the political arena and eliminating discrimination and violence against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities.
The issues were highlighted by participants using signs and posters they carried during the event. (kes)
