Trailblazing Women of the Village

Janes Walk

Led By Village Preservation

Greenwich Village is well known as the home to libertines in the 1920s and feminists in the 1960s and 1970s. But going back to at least the 19th century, Greenwich Village, the East Village, and NoHo were home to pioneering women who defied convention and changed the course of history, from the first female candidate for President, to America’s first woman doctor, to the “mother of birth control.” This map spotlights these trailblazing women.


The sites on this tour are sidewalk accessible, if explored in person. They can also be accessed virtually on a computer or smartphone.
