International Women's Day was on the 8th of March. Women in many countries celebrated this day. In India, a hundred women were in the streets of the capital, New Delhi. They asked the government to do more to protect them.

In South Africa, hundreds of people played in the street in Johannesburg. They wanted to stop situations when some people hit women. Some women prepared a special song for this day. The song is about a better life for women.

Interesting words: celebrate (do special things on a special day), government (leaders of one country).
