Dear Cambridge Women's Commission Community,

Are you interested in watching a documentary film about the little-known feminist activist event (that many of you actually know about, but still are interested in!) that included a 10-day building takeover of a Harvard-owned building in 1971? This action was led by hundreds of women and their demands were for a women's center in Cambridge, affordable housing, childcare and more. The film, LEFT ON PEARL, resulted in a $5,000 donation which led to the creation of  the Cambridge Women's Center which, still to this day, provides a supportive community and services to women from all walks of life. 

HOW: If you register, You'll have 72 hours to watch the film on your own time (or with a group of friends!) and then you can join us on Wednesday, May 27th @ 7pm for a panel discussion on Intergenerational Feminism led by the film producers (who are original protesters), the Cambridge Women's Center, and the Cambridge Women's Commission.

You can register for the event here - Donations support the Cambridge Women's Center and the 888 Women's History Project, but are not required. If you have any questions, please reach out.

Thank you!
Emily Shield
Cambridge Women's Commission
