What you'll learn in this tour class:

Meet the badass Brooklynites who brought us the ballot.

Behind the stately facades of Brooklyn Heights’ most gracious brownstones lies the history of firebrand feminism! The wise “women of Brooklyn” were doctors, lawyers, educators and orators who made some of the foremost contributions to the Suffrage movement. Join us for a walk through their neighborhood. As we make our way between the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and the Old Bridge Street Church, we’ll discover suffrage history at the home a noted playwright, find out why the Brooklyn Bridge is a feminist icon, and see how the Brooklyn Academy of Music set the stage for the Women’s Movement.

Reviewed by Molly O. on 5/29/2018
I really loved this walking tour. My guide was super interesting and knowledgeable and I will never see Brooklyn Heights again in the same way. It was totally worthwhile and the guide was able to answer all of my questions. I highly recommend this tour.
