Women Movers and Shakers of the East Village: A Walking Tour with Andrea Coyle

From breaking new ground in music, art, literature, fashion and medicine, to advancements in working conditions and women’s rights, the women of the Lower East Side played an invaluable role in shaping politics and culture in America and around the globe.

The Lower East Side/East Village is the birthplace of the Women’s Suffrage movement, Planned Parenthood, Visiting Nurse Services, Children’s Aid Society, International Ladies Garment Workers Union, Catholic Worker, Mother Earth magazine, experimental Off-Broadway theater, and so many more institutions and movements spearheaded by these pioneering women.
This event is co-sponsored by the Lower East Side History Project.
