Women from all walks of life on International Women's Day marched in downtown Skopje calling for end to stereotypes and violence against women and misogyny. "With this march, in addition to celebrating women, we urge also our fathers, brothers and sons to show solidarity with the women in Macedonia and to join forces to reject stereotypes and labels that constrain us and to say NO to violence and hatred of women," said the protesters. Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, Deputy PM and Defence Minister Radmila Sekerinska, Minister of Labour and Social Policy Mila Carovska, and Health Minister Venko Filipce joined the march. The event was organised by the Platform for Gender Equality and women's rights activists.
