TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Across the globe, people marched and rallied to support women and raise awareness for women's issues on International Women's Day, Thursday.
One event was held on the Indiana State University campus. It was sponsored by Activist Study Hall. Organizers say the plan was to gather outside but the weather drove people inside. However, the cold did not stop participants from discussing problems.
Organizer Allison Duerk says, "We are in the #MeToo era of course so the issue of sexual assault in the workplace and at home is the perennial issue for feminists anywhere."
People also talked about equal pay.
Those at the rally encourage others to contact their elected officials, write letters to the editor and vote.
