WOMXN TAKE THE STREETS

WEDNESDAY AUGUST 12TH, 2020 7:00 PM

 

Currently, only 7% of the people commemorated in Cambridge’s street names are women.

 

Join us for an intergenerational conversation on how to create more just and equitable public spaces in Cambridge; where the lives and voices of Cambridge womxn are uplifted and our streets, monuments, and memorials better reflect the rich diversity of our city.

 

Councillor E. Denise Simmons

Professor Catherine D'Ignazio, Director of the MIT Data + Feminism Lab

MIT and Harvard Urban Planning students, Clara Amenyo, Osamu Kumasaka, & Lenna Johnsen, who highlighted these disparities by creating an Instagram filter, street map, and playing cards featuring Cambridge women.
