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.

  2. That sounds amazing. Keep sharing such informative posts here. I am also in need of event space Chicago for organizing a craft and art show. I would like to give ideas for DIY wedding crafts to the couples that are going to marry soon. I was just wondering if you can help me to find a good spot.
