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.
Cambridge Women's Commission
