Tens of thousands of Australians have turned out to march across the country protesting against the sexual abuse of women, harassment, and gender inequality in the country.
Participants wore all black. Many women held signs that said, “Enough is Enough.” In Melbourne, marchers carried a list of names of women killed by men since 2008.
They were spurred by a recent wave of allegations of sexual assault, centred around the country’s parliament. The allegations have focused scrutiny on the conservative government.
The protests were organised a week ago, after Attorney General Christian Porter revealed he was the subject of a 1988 rape allegation which he strongly denies.
