Mayor Simmons Proclaims August 26 Women’s Equality Day in Cambridge

Honors the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote

“Women won the right to vote almost one century ago, and it was a hard-fought victory that only came about due to generations of women activists who refused to accept the status quo of being second-class citizens,” said Mayor E.

Brattle Street Becomes Parking Lot

Bike Safety Effort Creates Visual Eyesore
