Thousands of women farmers on Monday joined the massive protests against agrarian reforms taking place on the outskirts of Delhi to mark the International Women's Day, assuming leadership of the more than three-month old struggle for the day.

Around 20,000 women from the agricultural states of Haryana, Punjab and Uttar Pradesh arrived at the protest sites near the capital in trucks, buses and tractors to take center-stage at the sit-ins, according to organizers. EFE-EPA
