Thousands turn out for Women's March in London

This year’s London Women’s March was dubbed the “Bread and Roses Rally” in honour of the Polish-born American suffragette, Rose Schneiderman.

Schneiderman famously coined the phrase in 1911 by saying, “The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too.”

Organisers chose the theme in the hope that it would remind people of the protests that revolutionised workers’ rights for women in the early 20th century and galvanise marchers to rally against austerity in the United Kingdom.

Participants were encouraged to dress according to the theme for Saturday’s march, which started at noon in the city centre.

It began as a protest in response to the inauguration of President Trump, but has since evolved and now addresses a number of key issues affecting women.
