At the turn of the 20th-century, Greenwich Village was a “hotbed” of social and artistic activism, rooted in the fight for women’s rights and suffrage. On this docent-led tour, explore a dynamic combination of photographs, illustrations, and short films, largely produced by under-recognized women artists. Hear the untold stories of this energetic and proactive bohemian scene, led by African Americans, immigrant activists, and women of the working-class. This is a behind-the-scenes tour you don't want to miss!
