|Herstorical Date and Anniversary|
January 23, 1972: The Women's Center opened at 46 Pleasant Street, Cambridge, MA. It's been providing a safe space for renewal and sparking resistance since then. 2017 is the Center's 45th anniversary!
Please send us your memories of the Center and/or the march and takeover of 888 Memorial Drive which directly led to the Center's founding.
For more information on the Cambridge Women's center, visit the Women's Center website.
|Susan Lyman (1919-2016)|
We just learned that Susan Lyman died peacefully on December 29, 2016. As we showed in LEFT ON PEARL, Susan Lyman, as Chair of the Radcliffe Board of Trustees, visited 888 Memorial Drive and played a key role in the purchase of the Women's Center. She remained a supporter of the Center and of our film.
We are thrilled that LEFT ON PEARL has received a Director's Choice Award from the Black Maria Film Festival. This is a traveling festival - as soon
as we get the schedule for 2017, we will post it. The film has also been accepted to Cinema Systers Festival in Paducah, Kentucky and is tentatively scheduled to screen on May 27 at 1pm. For more updates as they happen, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram - links at the bottom of this email.
Thank you for your support!
Thanks to all of you who have donated to the film. It's never too late to give. We appreciate contributions of any size. To donate online or by check, click here.
