Terrific girls and Moms and women’s history tour

Last Saturday I led a women’s history tour in New York City with a terrific group of girls and their mothers! I had donated the tour as an item for the auction to raise money for Sophie’s school and the Mom of a 7th grader made the winning bid. We met at Eleanor Roosevelt’s statue at 72nd and Riverside Drive at noon on a very hot day. Three hours and several subway stops to visit sites, including Anna Hyatt Huntington’s magnificent sculpture, Joan of Arc, and The Stanton, the apartment building where Elizabeth Cady Stanton died, we ended at 155th where this picture was taken by a willing dog walker. We’re standing in front of the bronze doors at the American Academy of Arts and Letter, which are “Dedicated to the Memory of Mary E. Wilkins Freeman and the Women Writers of America.”
