March for Womens Day

Katherine Murillo

Hundreds of people gathered in downtown Los Angeles on International Womens Day to celebrate, protest and show solidarity with women’s issues. Organized by AF3IRM and Ovarian Psyco-Cycles, the event attracted a diversity of participants, ranging from groups rallying against domestic violence to immigrants seeking gender and sexual equality here and back home.
