Women’s eNews, New-York Historical Society Team Up on Walking Tour Opening the Way

Nonprofit news service Women’s eNews wants you to take a walk — a walk that will honor 21 important women spanning three centuries of history.

Women’s eNews teamed up with the New-York Historical Society on walking tour Opening the Way, in which authors Betsy Wade (former editor of The New York Times) and James Boylan (founding editor of Columbia Journalism Review) will lead participants through downtown Manhattan to learn about female heroes including journalists, abolitionists, and three women who lost their lives in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The two organizations are also developing a self-guided downloadable audio tour featuring the voices of Kathleen Turner, Tonya Lewis Lee, Lynn Sherr, and Gloria Steinem.
