Left on Pearl Film Screening @ Main Library
Mar 4 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Left on Pearl Film Screening @ Main Library | Dedham | Massachusetts | United States

Join us for a screening of Left on Pearl, a documentary film about a highly significant but little-known event in the history of the women’s liberation movement, the 1971 takeover and occupation of a Harvard University-owned building by hundreds of Boston area women. One of the film’s executive producers, Susan Jacoby, will be on hand to introduce the film as well as answer questions after the film. Left on Pearl t-shirts will also be available for purchase.

Left on Pearl is a documentary about a highly significant but little-known event in the history of the women’s liberation movement, 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 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.

The Dedham Public Library, with the League of Women Voters of Westwood, Walpole, and Dedham, are excited to announce our first ever candidate forum on Saturday March 14th at 2pm at the Main Library, 43 Church Street.
