Thousands took to the streets of Beirut Sunday for an annual march to mark International Women's Day last week, rallying under the slogan "Different causes, shared anger".The march was organized by the Lebanese feminist bloc, which includes feminist groups such as the Dammeh Cooperative, Feminist Network, the AUB gender and sexuality club, Sawt al-Niswa and Fe-male, in collaboration with NGOs including KAFA (enough) Violence and Exploitation, Helem and Lebanese Women Democratic Gathering.Topics raised at the march included gender equality, the abolishment of the kafala system and migrant domestic workers' rights, LGBTQ rights and violence against women.While the participants in the march were primarily women, many men also participated in support.
