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.
