MANILA, Philippines (AP) - Protests against the Philippine president, a surging #MeToo movement in South Korea and a call by Myanmar's female leader for women to use their strength marked International Women's Day on Thursday, as marches and demonstrations kicked off around the world. Hundreds of activists in pink and purple shirts protested in downtown Manila against Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, calling him among the worst violators of women's rights in Asia. Protest leaders sang and danced in a boisterous rally in Plaza Miranda, handing red and white roses to mothers, sisters and widows of drug suspects slain under Duterte's crackdown on illegal drugs.
