07/09/2022 11:00 AM - 01:00 PM ET
[In-person tour] In light of the recent overturn of Roe vs Wade, let's look back at the history of women's health in Greenwich Village, once home to this nation's first female physician, its earliest visiting nurses, its first female public health expert, its leading birth control advocates, its queer and trans health pioneers and even its largest pre-Roe abortion referal service (founded by Village-based clergy!). This tour will delve into women's health advocacy beginning as early as the 1840s, and consider how it intersected with many other fights for equality being waged in the Village and around the nation.
