The collective #NousToutes greets ” the biggest march in the history of France ” against gender-based violence. Tens of thousands of people marched this Saturday in Paris and in thirty cities in France to denounce violence against women and too many feminicides since the beginning of the year. 

Thirty or so organized marches brought together 150,000 people, according to the feminist collective #NousToutes, including 100,000 in Paris . The Occurrence cabinet counted 49,000 protesters in the capital during its count for a media collective. 

This mobilization was intended to put pressure on the government two days of the presentation of measures from the Grenelle on domestic violence. Last year, at the end of November, nearly 50,000 people had gathered in all of France including 30,000 in Paris according to the organizers.
