Left on Pearl

(Film Screening Friday, February March 13, 5:30 p.m. Peter’s Education Center Auditorium west of Save Mart Center in the Student Recreation Center Building)

Discussant: Rochelle Goldberg Ruthchild (Executive Producer)

Left on Pearl is a documentary about a highly significant but little-known event in the history of the women’s liberation movement, namely the 1971 takeover and occupation of a Harvard University-owned building by hundreds of Boston area women. The ten-day occupation of 888 Memorial Drive by local women demanding a Women’s Center and low income housing for the community in which the building stood, embodied within it many of the hopes, triumphs, conflicts and tensions of Second Wave feminism. One of the few such takeovers by women for women, this action was transformative for the participants and led directly to the establishment of the longest continuously operating Women’s Center in the U.S. 55 minutes.

All films screened on campus are free and open to the public. Parking is not enforced after 4 p.m. on Fridays.
