Women make up half of the population, yet their stories have often been neglected, excluded, or marginalized in public memory. West Chester, long the center of battles for equality and civil rights, has been home to several trailblazing women who left an indelible mark on the history of law, abolition, suffrage, education, politics, and science. This 1.5-hour walking tour will visit the homes and businesses of the women that shaped West Chester from colonial times to the present.
