Women's History of the Village Walking Tour

Women's History of the Village Walking Tour

Even before Greenwich Village became known as the center of American Bohemianism, extraordinary women have been making their mark here with art, activism and unconventional living. During its pre-WWI heyday the Village was a magnet for feminists, and it continued to be home to women artists and entrepreneurs throughout the 20th century while also cultivating a thriving lesbian and trans community. This tour explores sites associated with some of the many fascinating women in the neighborhood, some of whom have been largely forgotten but no less played a vital role in creating the legacy of feminism we continue today.
