Women’s History Month is celebrated in Harvard Square!

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 Café, 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:
