Opening Reception for Ellen Shub’s photo exhibition
On March 6, 1971, International Women's Day marchers turned left on Pearl Street in Cambridge, MA and seized a Harvard University building at 888 Memorial Drive, declaring it a Women's Center and holding it for ten days. This action proved trans formative for the participants and led to the founding of the longest continuously operating community Women’s Center in the U.S. The 888 Women’s History Project and filmmaker Susie Rivo are producing a documentary film, LEFT ON PEARL, which highlights this significant but little-known chapter in the history of the Women’s Liberation Movement. “The best thing I’ve seen on Second Wave Feminism” Professor Nancy Cott, Harvard University, Director of the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America Monday, March 4, 6:30 PM: Celebrate Women’s History Month at the Connolly Branch Library Women's Liberation, the Unfinished Struggle: Documenting the History & Discussing the Future. Join LEFT ON PEARL Filmmakers, award-winning photojournalist Ellen Shub, and other feminists for a discussion on documenting the women's movement through photos, films, and stories.
