Around Town March 17

Take a walk with Fierce Women of Chester County. Women make up half of the population, yet their stories have often been neglected, excluded, or marginalized in public memory. Long the center of battles for equality and civil rights, West Chester has been home to several trailblazing women who left an indelible mark on the history of law, abolition, suffrage, education, politics, and science. This 1.5-hour walking tour will visit the homes and businesses of the women that shaped West Chester from colonial times to the present. Tickets are $15 (members of CCHC receive a discount.) Once purchased, tickets are nonrefundable. Tours are scheduled for March 19, 23, 26, and 30. Times vary.Register here.
