Around 8,000 women hit the streets of Berlin for International Women's Day on Thursday.

Marching through the districts of Neukolln and Kreuzberg, the protesters chanted 'feminism' and carried banners such as 'my body, my choice', 'grab them by the patriarchy' and 'women's work is value'.

SOT, Mehtap Erol, protester (German): "I think March 8 is very important. Today I'm here to show presence on the behalf of Kurdish women. Now this war in Afrin, women who fight in self-defense and against Erdogan, I wanna show visibility today for those women. Also in Turkey, HDP and various organisations have called women to the streets. Unfortunately they were attacked by the police, beaten up and the demos were torn apart."
