#BIGPICTURE: Honoring women's history month, all month long


We're going to Brazil for Day 21 of Women's History Month -- that's where protestors are crying, screaming, and chanting in front of the State Legislature in Rio De Janeiro. Why? Last week, a black politician named Marielle Franco -- and the only black woman in Rio's city council -- was murdered in her car. She was a force, calling for black empowerment and openly questioning police brutality. Following Franco's death, people around the globe are being inspired to fight against racial oppression.
