Program 1

Women's Heritage Trails

Women’s heritage trails are being developed across the United States to share women’s history with the public. From Maine to Florida, Arizona to New Jersey, organizations in cities and states are creating maps that link historic sites to inform the public about women’s stories. They’re creating websites, walking and driving trails and publications about women’s lives and history. Statewide trails are in the works or completed in New Jersey, Florida, Connecticut, Indiana, Arizona, Maryland, and New York. Several city-wide trails also exist, in places like Boston, Manhattan, and Portland, Maine. These trails have a variety of structures, funding sources and methods of interpretation

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

""America's story makes no sense with half of its participants missing," argues Dr. Heather Huyck, executive director of the NCWHS. "Leaving women out of the story is as serious a distortion of our history as trying to tell the history of the Civil War without talking about black history.""
