The figures featured on your typical tour through Philly’s Historic District are predominantly men, from the Founding Fathers on down.
But what about the women who contributed so much to the history of the city and the nation? Even in times when they were afforded less power and fewer rights, female leaders were very active in Philadelphia. But other than Betsy Ross, their names have been elided from most tourist traipses through Old City — until now.
Thanks to a Haverford grad Rebecca Laureanna Fisher, you can now take a tour that unearths the history of Philly’s most badass women — “cool colonial women, change makers, sex workers and more” through Beyond the Bell Tours.
CURO will be gathering a group of women for a private tour in April 2019, with Beyond the Bell. If you're interested in joining us for what is sure to be a fun, interesting and educational day, please let us know you would like to be sent an invitation.
This date is TENTATIVE and SUBJECT TO CHANGE as we finalize details.
