Walking NY Tour Celebrates Woman's History

 

 

NEW YORK - Women’s eNews is partnering with the New York Historical Society to launch “Opening the Way,” a walking tour that celebrates women’s history in downtown Manhattan. The walk honors 21 women spanning three centuries, including journalists and abolitionists, as well as three heroes who gave their lives on September 11, 2001.

The women’s history walking tour was inspired by the relocation of the Women’s eNews office last year to 6 Barclay Street and has been undergoing rapid expansion alongside the re-launch under the new title, ‘Opening the Way.

 

The next stage will see the release of a self-guided downloadable audio tour recorded by, amongst others, Kathleen Turner, Tonya Lewis Lee, Lynn Sherr, and Gloria Steinem who will become the voices of the historical figures in the exciting new version of the walk.

The Women’s eNews and New York Historical Society partnered tour will be led by its authors – former New York Times editor Betsy Wade and founding editor of the Columbia Journalism Review and historian James Boylan – and marks the major launch of the women’s history tour previewed in 2009.


About Women’s eNews: Women's eNews is a prize-winning nonprofit news service supported by its readers and other donors. Launched in 2000, the independent media outlet provides news coverage unavailable anywhere else of substantive issues of particular concern to women and women’s views on public policy. Rita Henley Jensen is founder and editor in chief.
