Digital Discussion - Women Influencers

Thursday June 4

2:00 PM  –  3:00 PM

From the nineteenth century onwards, the lives of working women were deeply influenced by the growth and improvement of mass transit in New York City. Heavily relying on mass transit to get them to and from their places of work, women began to advocate for improved experiences while riding that ensured their safety and equal rights.


Join Educator Sonya Ochshorn for a digital discussion and learn about pioneering women in transit, including those who stood up for civil rights and became citizen scientists in the 19th century. Explore the stories of women who thrived in traditionally male-dominated fields and how transit enabled these roles to transform over time.
