NEW YORK — Undeterred by Friday’s snowstorm, Christy Turlington Burns, Susan Sarandon and Alexandra Richards were among the 200-plus women who joined U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s wife, Ban Soon-taek, in the first “March on March 8.”
After the half-mile walk from the United Nations to Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, supporters huddled under umbrellas as they listened to speakers. Even the Secretary-General made a surprise appearance on stage. The crowd also cheered when Sarandon read a transcript of a video message from Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl activist who nearly died after being shot by the Taliban for her belief that girls deserve the right to an education.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
