International Women's Day - the one day a year officially dedicated to women's rights - has again inspired people of all backgrounds to join the march for equality.
IWD falls on March 8, but rallies and marches - like the one in Sydney today (March 9) - are reserved for weekends, when more people are free to show their support.
Nurses and Midwife Union member Holly Rebeiro, describes it as:
... the one day a year when you can get together with women from just about every walk of life.
"This is about us making sure that people know this is actually a women's movement," she said. "And women everywhere need to be given equal opportunities to achieve equal outcomes."
IWD has been celebrated annually for 108 years.
It was first established to rally for a woman's right to work and vote - and, ultimately, to end discrimination. Yet, despite over a century passing, women are still rallying for the same basic rights.
This year's theme was #BalanceforBetter; a mantra encouraging and emphasising the true definition of feminism as a pathway to equality.
Mother and daughter Rose Clapham and Juliet Adriaanse believe it is important to march.
Because everyone has rights and everyone should get equal pay. Just because we are [defined as] men and women, doesn't make [our rights] different.
Ms Adriaanse attended today's rally for her daughter. She's one of many thinking not only of the current generation, but of future generations.
"It is role modelling and knowing there are lots of like-minded people - men, women and children - and that she is not alone," she said.
But IWD is not without its haters.
Social media has been flooded with angry posts - some calling for an International Men's Day.
However, there were many men who attended today's march to stand in solidarity with women and non-binary people.
Thibault Cosseron De Villenoisy considers himself a feminist.
"I will stand here in solidarity, I will try and start arguments with my friends, pushing them to be more progressive and fight for equality," he said. - Dana Rutner @dana_rutner
