Left on Pearl: Women Take Over

LEFT ON PEARL is an award-winning documentary about a significant but little-known chapter in the history of the Women’s Liberation Movement. On March 6, 1971, International Women’s Day marchers turned left on Pearl Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts to seize and occupy the Harvard University building at 888 Memorial Drive and declare it a Women’s Center. Hundreds of women, veterans of the antiwar and civil rights movements (among them some of the earliest out lesbian rights activists) participated in this effective action. Following the film there will be Q&A with film producer. Tickets $10.00 adult/$5.00 student. Learn more about film at http://www.leftonpearl.org/
