Well over 1,000 campaigners travelled to Belfast from all over Ireland to take part in the Processions event marking 100 years of voting rights for women.
Billed as a mass participation artwork, parades also took place in Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.
Following on from the recent Irish referendum, reform of abortion law in Northern Ireland was the loud message from local groups and others from Dublin, Galway and Cork were calling for.
Among those taking part was Derry Girls actress Saoirse Monica-Jackson.
Posting a picture with the crowds on Twitter she said: "There is no freedom without the freedom of woman. I am having the most fantastic day at Processions Belfast.
Sarah Daly from Galway east for Choice, dressed in suffragette period costume, made the long journey to take part.
"We repealed the eight amendment down in Galway and we just want to show our support for our sisters in the north," she said.
"It's lovely to be dressed as a suffragette to celebrate the 100 years, hopefully we're making history as well. I think things have to change here, sooner rather than later hopefully."
