Algeria protests: Over a million people march against President Bouteflika

FRANCE 24 brings you a special programme to honour African women on International Women's Day. We take a look at how women are driving change in Algeria. We also introduce you to the Cameroonian rights activist, Aissa Doumara, who received the inaugural Simone Veil prize for her work against forced marriages. And we report on how men in Burkina Faso honour their wives by switching roles with them for a day.
