The march, which marked the one-year anniversary of a female-led global protest against Donald Trump's presidency, began at 11am at Richmond Terrace opposite Downing Street. The #TimesUp and #MeToo movements loomed large in people's minds as it began.
The rally was hosted by Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, a lawyer, women's activist and co-organiser of the event. Speakers included writer and activist Paris Lees, the cofounder and director of UK Black Pride, Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, and Stella Creasy, the Labour MP for Walthamstow.
They held up placards expressing solidarity with the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements, protesting the gender pay gap, and calling for equal rights for women across the board.
