Time's Up: Thousands gather for gender equality

Time's Up: Thousands gather for gender equality
In pictures — Women and girls took to the snow in London on Sunday to demand an end to sexism and bigotry.

Exactly one year one from the Women’s March – a global day of protest which saw towns and cities brought to a standstill across the world – Sunday’s Time’s Up rally saw thousands once again march through London. Called by Women’s March London as part of an international series of protests, women came together in the capital to call time on sexual harassment, the gender pay gap, and other manifestations of sexism.

Despite snow and icy conditions, attendees gathered outside Downing Street, the crowd addressed by campaigners including Helen Pankhurst, Reni Eddo-Lodge, Stella Creasy and Paris Lees. It was announced that a Time’s Up fund would be set up in Britain to help women cover legal costs when challenging sexism and gendered-violence. A similar fund has been set up in Hollywood already. According to organisers, similar marches kicked off in 34 countries, with millions taking part worldwide.

Photographer Theo McInnes headed down to capture the action.
