Thousands of people participated in Women's March Jakarta 2018 on Saturday (03/03) to commemorate International Women's Day, which falls on 8 March.

Participants started gathering in a parking lot on Jalan M.H. Thamrin in Central Jakarta since 7.00 a.m. before marching to Aspirasi Park near the Presidential Palace, passing the Horse Statue on their way.

Marchers sought to promote greater awareness of women's issues in Indonesia and demanded that the government pays more attention to their aspirations.

They also called on the government to do more to prevent gender-based violence.
