Suffragist City: A Walking Tour

Janes Walk

Led By Kevin Douglas, Distant Mirror, Founder, Distant Mirror (Events Company)

Although mostly forgotten today, a titanic battle was waged by women on the streets of Midtown. We will visit locations associated with that movement’s climactic decade, from 1908 to 1917. We will see buildings which served as various headquarters, learn about eight parades, and hear stories of notable personalities. Special attention will be paid to the vital roles played by women of color, immigrants from many countries, and men. All are welcome.
