Brazil: #NotHim Women Protest Far-Right Jair Bolsonaro

Hundreds of thousands gathered at different cities in Brazil to reject the far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro, from the Social Liberal Party (PSL), September 29. The movement was led by feminists opposing the candidate's sexism and joined by leftist organizations.

The marches follow social media unrest, as Bolsonaro's remarks have shown little empathy towards gender equality.
