How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

The day before yesterday was International Women's Day, so we went to the feminist demonstration in Madrid. There were many people in Gran Vía, and most of us were women. It was a very exciting march, since we reclaimed our rights and we rejected the sexist violence that kills thousands of women every year. At the end of the march we heard a manifesto from the organizers and we pledged to continue the fight in favor of women.

I'll be right with you...
