**Lunch will be served.**
Left on Pearl documents 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 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.
