Women's History Month

2016 Story of Her Success - Women's History Month Breakfast (from left to right) - Candy O'Terry, Marilynn Brass, Sheila Brass, Mayor E. Denise Simmons and Jodi Adams.


Across the US, the UK and Australia, the month of March, is celebrated as Women’s History Month. Each year, the Harvard Square Business Association commemorates Women’s History Month by proudly publishing an annual list of women business owners, as well as, political, civic, academic, cultural and non-profit leaders from across the Square and across our great city.

We celebrate the achievements of all women, and particularly applaud the impact that our HSBA women assert in our community and beyond. We acknowledge their dedication and professionalism and honor their contributions and success.

We send our sincerest thanks and congratulations to:
