City of Women 2.0: A Discussion with Joshua Jelly-Schapiro and Julie Scelfo

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday September 19

6:30 PM  –  8:30 PM

In New York City, there has been a timely push to publicly commemorate women who have made important contributions to the city’s development over time. Joshua Jelly-Schapiro, co-editor of Nonstop Metropolis and researcher behind the City of Women map, will discuss the  significance of mapping New York City’s cultural history while shedding light on the names of the unsung heroines who contributed to it. During the conversation, a newly updated City of Women map will be unveiled, further celebrating and memorializing women who have shaped New York City from the very beginning.


Currently on view in the exhibition, Navigating New York and featured in Nonstop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas, the City of Women map pays “homage to some of the great and significant women of New York City in the places where they lived, worked, competed, went to school, danced, painted, wrote, rebelled, organized, philosophized, taught, and made names for themselves”.
