If you ask the average feminist of 2008 if the world has changed much in the past 30 years she will likely say, "No." When it comes to violence against women, not much has changed as all.
These women could be marching just like this today and they are.

Violence against women and girls continues unabated in every continent, country and culture. It takes a devastating toll on women’s lives, on their families, and on society as a whole. Most societies prohibit such violence — yet the reality is that too often, it is covered up or tacitly condoned. — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, 8 March 2007
