Skopje, 8 March 2018 (MIA) - Women from all walks of life on International Women's Day marched in downtown Skopje calling for end to stereotypes and violence against women and misogyny.

Prime Minister Zoran Zaev, Deputy PM and Defense Minister Radmila Sekerinska, Minister of Labor and Social Policy Mila Carovska, and Health Minister Venko Filipce joined the march.
