Upcoming Events

Thursday, September 26 Women and Words! How is today’s domestic violence movement feminist?

7–8:30pm   City Hall Annex, 344 Broadway
  Free and open to the public
  Wheelchair accessible
  Light refreshments
Ann Fleck-Henderson, author of Transition House 1976-2017: The Movement and The Mainstream, will discuss Cambridge’s domestic violence agency’s evolution from a feminist collective to today’s more formally structured nonprofit community organization. A recent New Yorker article decried Transition House’s “loss of feminist principles” (August 19, 2019). How does an organization balance loyalty to its fundamental roots with the demands of a changing movement? What is the role of feminism in today’s domestic violence movement?
