One of the protesters, Indara Costa, 18, said: "Men in Brazil think we are objects. We want to be able to do what we want with our bodies without being harassed."

Another said, "Brazil is one of the worst places for a woman to travel alone. When I travel I bring a special door jam so that my hotel room cannot be opened."
