More than 1,000 women--and men--took part in the Denver march, one of many staged across the country by organizers of January's Women's March. The action called on women to stay home from work and not spend money in stories or online to show their economic clout on America's fabric. (AP Photo/David Zalubowski)

Landmarks across the world are pretty in pink in honor of International Women's Day


International Women's Day may be drawing to a close, but cities across the world continued to celebrate gender equality well into Wednesday evening.

Prominent landmarks, such as the Empire State Building and the London Eye, sparkled in magenta colored lights against the night sky in honor of the United Nations "HeForShe" campaign.

Here's the Empire State Building.

The London Eye glistened, too.

And, the Royal Palace of Madrid looked pretty in pink.

According to its site, the HeForShe campaign aims to promote gender equality not only as a women's issue but as a human rights issue as well. 

"HeForShe is inviting people around the world to stand together to create a bold, visible force for gender equality. And it starts by taking action right now to create a gender equal world," its mission statement read.
