International Women's Day was manifested with a marching protest in Tirana. The “Red shoes” installation at Skanderbeg square attracted passers-by, wondering what’s the symbol of that.
The Red Shoes Installation by artist Elina Chauvet is worldly known since 2009. For Chauvet, red takes on several meanings. It represents bloodshed, but also change and hope and love, according to the artist.
Women marched from Skanderbeg square towards Mother Teresa Square. Women called for gender equality, for stronger laws in Albania.
The Ambassador of Sweden in Tirana, Mrs. Esla Hastad joined the protest, holding a banner “She’s not a girl, she’s a Legend”!
