How is Today’s Domestic Violence Movement Feminist?

Thursday, September 26, 7–8:30pm

City Hall Annex, 344 Broadway


Ann Fleck-Henderson, author of Transition House 1976-2017: The Movement and The Mainstream, will discuss Cambridge’s domestic violence agency’s evolution from a feminist collective to today’s more formally structured nonprofit community organization. A recent New Yorker article decried Transition House’s “loss of feminist principles” (August 19, 2019). How does an organization balance loyalty to its fundamental roots with the demands of a changing movement? What is the role of feminism in today’s domestic violence movement?


Sponsored by the Cambridge Women’s Commission, a Women&Words! event

Friday, September 27, 5:30pm pizza, 6pm film
