On Sunday, July 24th, Women’s eNews will be hosting a scavenger hunt for women’s history in New York City!
“Join Women’s eNews to celebrate women’s imprint on New York City’s history with a special Scavenger Hunt version of Opening the Way.
Follow clues to compete for a fun packed feminist goody bag while walking through the accomplishments of 21 diverse female leaders, honoring suffragists, abolitionists, journalists, and fierce thinkers who changed both the city and the nation among the streets of downtown New York City.
Discover Elizabeth Jennings’ stand against racial segregation on Park Row, Margaret Sanger’s indictment for her fierce support of reproductive health and Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s publishing of the feminist journal The Revolution. ”
Prizes for the winners of the scavenger hunt include donations from Ms. Magazine and the Feminist Press.
Participants should plan to meet with their groups outside of the WeNews’ Headquarters (6 Barclay Street, New York NY 10007) at 11:00 am. Registration costs 50.00 dollars per group; each group may have up to four people.
To register and/or receive more information, email Charlotte Cooper or call (212) 244-1744.
