    Tens of thousands of women in Great Britain have marched together to create a living artwork celebrating 100 years since they won the right to vote. The suffragette movement campaigned for decades for women's democratic rights - using both protest and direct action. Sunday's event was a reminder of contemporary struggles, too.
