This summer, The Times started a walking tour to document some of the little-known locations where women made history in New York. (Want to check it out? Use the special offer code INHERWORDS for 15 percent off tickets or enter here for a chance to win two.)
Now we’re expanding our list beyond the city — and we need your help.
Is there a location in your town where some bit of remarkable women’s history took place?
It could be a bar that barred women until a groundbreaking law in 1970 (Barbara Shaum was the first to be allowed inside McSorley’s in Manhattan), a street corner where a woman was arrested for smoking in public (Katie Mulcahey, in 1908), or a nondescript office building where a group of women decided to start a feminist zine (Bust). Or something else entirely.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about your spot. Where is it, and what happened there? Please provide as many specifics as possible — the more unexpected the better.
