Thousands of people marched through London for gender equality yesterday (March 4).

It took place ahead of International Women's Day which is on Thursday (March 8) and some also marked the fact it’s 100 years since some women were granted voting rights.

Several famous people were seen amongst the placards including Sadiq Khan, Bianca Jagger, Biffy Clyro and Michael Sheen, according to Sky News.

Also on the march was Helen Pankhurst, the great-granddaughter of famous suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst. Some wore sashes which read "deeds not words," which was a suffragette phrase used 100 years ago.

Theresa May also supported the march by tweeting "Here's to all the 'bloody difficult women' out today on the #March4Women." This is because she has previously been described as a "bloody difficult woman" herself.
