“What would your daily commute look like if it celebrated remarkable women and non-binary people who have shaped [London]?” asks the pop-up that greets you at City of Women. Launched on International Women’s Day 2022, in partnership with Transport for London, City of Women replaces the names of familiar stations with household names and unsung heroes from arts, sports, activism, science, media, law, medicine and beyond.
Brought to you by Reni Eddo-Lodge, Rebecca Solnit, and Emma Watson, this new map celebrates the lives of women and non-binary people who have left a lasting impact on the city.
Instead of jumping off at Bond Street, Notting Hill Gate, Warren Street, Paddington, Euston Square, Waterloo, Bank or Lancaster Gate, what if you were invited to mind the gap at Audrey Hepburn, Claudia Jones, Virginia Woolf, Mary Seacole, Noor Inayat Khan, Agnes Beckwith, Boudica or Jung Chang?
City of Women encourages Londoners to take a second glance and reimagine the iconic Underground map.
The Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Yale University is proud to share that our Presidential Visiting Fellow, Professor Gail Lewis, is featured on the Bakerloo Line. Read about Professor Lewis here, and navigate the City of Women to learn more.
