Women in the southern Indian state of Kerala have formed a 620km (385-mile) human chain “in support of gender equality”, amid a row over access to a prominent Hindu temple.
The Sabarimala shrine was historically closed to women of “menstruating age” – defined as between 10 and 50.
India’s top court overturned the ban in September, but protesters have since attacked female visitors.
The “women’s wall” was organised by the state’s left-wing coalition government.
Around five million women from various parts of Kerala had gathered across all national highways to form the chain, which stretched from the northern tip of Kasaragod to the southern end in Thiruvanthapuram
