Left on Pearl

September 22 @ 3:15 pm - 4:10 pm

$13.25

In 1971 classified ads for employment were still segregated by gender, battered women’s shelters did not exist, abortion was illegal, and married women couldn’t open a bank account without their husbands’ permission. LEFT ON PEARL is about the movement that changed all that. This fast-paced documentary focuses on 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 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 and glories – as well as the conflicts and fault lines – of what came to be known as Second Wave feminism.
