St. Anthony’s celebrates International Women’s Day

The St. Anthony’s Free Clothing Program hosted over 100 women today in honor of International Women’s Day. The nonprofit put on an event that they called an “empowerment experience for low-income and homeless women in San Francisco,” according to their website. 

Women were invited to shop for clothes, bras, jewelry and menstrual products. After they shopped, they had the opportunity to get their makeup done by Kendo makeup artists.
