International Women’s Day: Protests and tributes in the city

The theme of gender inequality dominated conversations in the streets and on social media as Nairobians marked the International Women’s Day on Friday.

Feminism groups held a demonstration outside Parliament buildings to protest the rise in femicide cases in the country.

International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

On social media, TV anchor Betty Kyallo acknowledged women who continue to persevere through hardship,  while socialite Huddah Monroe urged women never to be afraid to break rules to achieve their goals.

Below are some of their IWD messages.

Cheers to all women doing what we were put in this world to do; be great, be gentle, be smart, be caring, loving, nurturing and many more special duties. I salute you all but especially the ones who’ve been broken and still continue to rise… I love those ones especially. 1f618 - International Women’s Day: Protests and tributes in the city1f618 - International Women’s Day: Protests and tributes in the city1f618 - International Women’s Day: Protests and tributes in the city
