    Women's History Month is celebrated in Harvard Square!

    The Harvard Square Business Association is pleased to observe Women's History Month in Harvard Square. We applaud our woman-owned businesses, women organization directors, and all women civic, political and academic leaders in Cambridge. 



    This year the Harvard Square Business Association embarks upon its 101st Anniversary.  Since 1910, women have played an important role in defining the fabric of the Square. From the legendary Window Shop to Crema CafĂ©, from Looks to Oona’s Experienced Clothing, women have worked hard, set standards, generated value and created community.  We celebrate their achievements and thank them for their contributions. 


    Harvard Square is privileged to honor the following women business owners, organization directors and leaders:
