International Women's Day rally at De la Guerra Plaza


S.B. Joins International Women’s Day


The mood just before noon on Wednesday at De la Guerra Plaza was both celebratory and impassioned as hundreds of Santa Barbarans participated in International Women’s Day. Donning bright-red shirts, scarves, and hats, women and a few men gathered beneath the hot sun to kick off a day of progressive-inspired activities. Following the unexpectedly massive Women’s March the day after President Trump’s inauguration, one organizer said, “It’s becoming stronger and more powerful. It’s not stopping.”
