Every day is Women’s Day at the Santa Barbara Independent. From our intrepid editor-in-chief, Marianne Partridge, who blazed the way by being the first female editor at Rolling Stone magazine, to our indefatigable publisher, Brandi Rivera, who got married, had a baby, and earned her MBA ​— ​all while running the company ​— ​within the space of a year, we dedicate our energy, grit, and wisdom to our families, community, and craft. Yes, we have many talented men in our midst, but the women of the Indy play a critical role in creating the magic on our pages every day. Happy International Women’s Day.

As a free weekly community newspaper, we must evolve and grow in order to stay relevant and thrive in the digital space. If our reporting on the Santa Barbara community matters to you, we hope you will join us in securing a strong future for journalism in our region by supporting the Independent through a digital subscription to Breaking news, critical content, and our print publication will always remain free, but your support will allow us to create even more consistent, quality, independent journalism.
