KCAL9’s Tom Wait reported from the Lynwood location.  He reported that this location seemed to be the only one taking part in the celebration locally.

19-year-old Cynthia Longoria, who lives and works in Lynwood, said she appreciated the gesture.

“That’s amazing,” she said, “as a female in a low income family. from a minority, it’s great to see representation of not only my gender but in my neighborhood. It feels awesome.”

She said the day is a reminder for women to become empowered.

“I think about it a lot,” Longoria said, “because I think every day is International Women’s Day. Because without women, this world would not be going around. It’s just a reality of the situation.”


Very very dope! Salute to the manager of this McDonald’s, it may be a small gesture but it’s still a gesture. We need to start seeing this more across the nation, Happy International Women’s Day!!
