AP PHOTOS: A selection of pictures from the past week
A riot police officer places her hand on her shield as she helps to prevent a march marking International Women's Day from reaching the government palace, in La Paz, Bolivia, on Friday, March 8, 2019. The day has been sponsored by the United Nations since 1975 as millions of women around the world are demanding equality amid a persistent salary gap, violence and widespread inequality.
