March-November

Opening the Way: A Women's History Walk

Starting in March, in celebration of Women's History Month and warmer weather, Opening the Way, New York City's only women's history walking tour, is available for public and private tours on weekends.

OTW Patch_Cropped

Opening the Way is a 21-stop walking tour capturing three centuries of women’s historic connections to Downtown Manhattan.

On the walk, we explore the work of these writers, agitators, abolitionists, suffragists, and those we now call activists, as well as three heroes who gave their lives on September 11, 2001. As you walk the streets, you will be able to absorb a sense of the world in which they worked and made themselves heard above the roar of the city.

To book a tour email openingtheway@womensenews.org

This summer, Incorrigibles has been invited to participate in Visions of Confinement: A Lens on Women in the United States Prison System. The exhibition, organized by Issac Scott (Confined Arts) and Arden Sherman (Hunter East Harlem Gallery), is centered around the experiences of incarcerated women, formerly incarcerated women, and their families. Over the course of the summer, the space will host a variety of "artistic meditations" on the lives and experiences of women involved in the US prison system. Fostering dialogues on reform and improving prison conditions for women, weekly public programs organized by the exhibition's collaborators and curators will take place in the gallery. See details regarding the exhibition and the upcoming Incorrigibles' event below:

incorrigibles

Incorrigibles is a transmedia and documentary project focused on the history of incarcerated girls in the United States. At its core, the project aims to reexamine and redefine the term ‘incorrigible’, which is repeatedly used to label and define young women, starting with records from the New York State Training School for Girls. With almost 600 girls at its height, it was once the largest juvenile detention facility in the US. Stories from the school reflect the deep patterns, both linguistic and penal, that have shaped the perceptions and strategies used to deal with what North American society deems threatening and disruptive behavior in young women then and now.
