Dozens of locals took part in a Women’s March down Linden Avenue on Wednesday, March 8, organized by the group Women Making Change in celebration of International Women’s Day.

People of all ages joined with handmade signs and sunflowers, and the march was followed by a reception at the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center. This is one of many events organized by Women Making Change during the month of March, in celebration of Women’s History Month.

Women Making Change is in its second year of organizing local events, and the full schedule of this month’s events is available at or on the group’s Facebook page.
