I love the lesbian chats here and the fact that I can use the computers and eat there as well as meet other queer women.
I love the Cambridge Women's Center. It is one of the best free places that I have found which offers great services to its community. Women have free access to borrowed books on a variety of topics, a kitchen where they can cook and eat, free computer with internet access and cheap printing, and a meeting room where they can many types of meetings that benefit those who attend them. The staff is friendly, never ask for anything, and professional. I have used the center for years ever since I got divorced, realized my attraction for women, and attended lesbian groups there where I made acquaintances and friends, learn and have a great time. I can't say enough good things about this place. Please help it open because we women truly need and love it including me!
The Cambridge Women Center provides a vital role in Massachusetts !!! Women from many different cities and town use the Women's center in Cambridge. It has allowed me to connect and be supported by the Lesbian Community. I've attend free groups at the center and everyone has always been very welcoming and nonjudgmental.
Three years ago when I went to the Incest Resources monthly drop-in discussion group at the Women's Center, I was scared. Even if I didn't talk, just walking into a room that was only for female survivors of childhood sexual abuse was a huge step. I was declaring publicly that I had been sexually abused. Breaking the silence. Discussing the taboo. I couldn't believe I was going to do this. I felt like a freak. Like I didn't deserve to be there. But I went anyway. A room full of twenty women that society wouldn't expect to be together. Different educational and socio-economic backgrounds, ages, and beliefs. All of us sexually abused as children. But it was more than our traumas that connected us. It was a desire to heal. To help others. To break silence and speak truth. After being traumatized, abused and ignored for decades, I was finally seen and heard. It was the first time I felt my authentic self emerge from the ashes of my trauma. If that space hadn't been there, I wonder how much more time I would have lost in my healing.
The Cambridge Women's Center is amazing. When I graduated from college in 1998, I found I was having a hard time meeting people who did activities other than drink. I was very discouraged and in 2002, I went to a social group at the Women's Center. it was there that I met some of my best friends in the world. I don't know what I would have done without The Center. It truly changed my life!
It is an amazing place to meet other women and get a chance to talk and learn about each others. As a Latina Lesbian, I've always found the CWC to be a very welcoming place, safe and full of women who want to give to the community and improve their lives. We do better because of the CWC. Thanks, Maribel
Last fall I attended a workshop on Healing Through Herbal Medicine that was hosted at the Cambridge Women's Center. The presenter was thoughtful and knowledgeable, the staff and space were warm and welcoming, and the clients/community members at the Center seemed very happy to be there. I believe the Center does wonderful, life-changing work!
The Cambridge Women's Center hosts Lesbian Conversation and Lesbian Chat at no charge to the Boston Lesbian Women's Group. Those are in-depth conversations that have profound impact on our lives. The Center is always welcoming and has worm inclusive atmosphere. I am thankful for being able to come to these events.
I am part of a conversation group that meets monthly at the Center. The Center does not charge for the use of their facility, which is clean and well maintained. The facility is also centrally located and easily accessible by car or public transportation. Many of the participants in our group are new to the state and this is a fabulous resource for them to meet other people.
