Coming soon! Summer 2019 Mapping Feminist Cambridge, Hampshire Street 1970’s–1990’s

Did you know that in the early 1970’s, Inman Square was home to many women-owned businesses and organizations like a health center, law collective, credit union, and a craft collective? Or that one of the nation’s first feminist bookstores thrived at 186 Hampshire Street for more than 25 years? This summer, the Cambridge Women’s Commission will launch an exciting new walking tour highlighting the rich feminist history along Hampshire Street from 1970 to 1990. Join us to learn more about the lasting imprint of feminist organizations in Inman Square. More information about upcoming tours as well as a downloadable self-guided booklet will be available here soon.
