Self-Guided * Outdoors * 2 Hours
The social and economic changes of the 18th and 19th centuries did not skip Boston and its residents, and the women of the city had a big part in these transformations. The streets of downtown Boston reveal the stories of those women from every aspect of life – arts, law, business, civil rights, and women’s rights.
In this self-guided tour, you’ll visit historical sites including the Nurses Hall, The Boston Athenæum, and the Edmonia Lewis Studio. You’ll meet women who were ahead of their time, such as Anne Hutchinson, Mary Dyer, Angelina and Sarah Grimké, and Elizabeth Murray.
