In few other places have so many notable women lived and achieved.
For the last 160 years, it has seen an unparalleled variety of women — working class, gentry, radical, literary, academic, theatrical, convict and immigrant — remarkable women who left their imprints on the Washington Sq. neighborhood — and beyond. Highlights of the tour — literary, art and theatre iconoclasts:
- The salon of Mable Dodge, a center of WW I-era activism
- The tragedy of the Triangle fire and its role in the labor movement
- The Suffrage Movement
