Boston’s Women’s Heritage Trail

March is Women’s History Month, and with the longer days and weather warming up, we can get some fresh air and celebrate local women’s contributions to history, on the Boston Women’s Heritage Trail. I’ve walked most of it (lazy…) and it’s inspiring and beautiful.

The Trail was founded in 1989 by teachers, librarians and students to give women their rightful place in Boston’s story and in the public-school curriculum. It celebrates over 200 women who made a difference in the lives of people here and around the world. The women you’ll encounter as you walk along the Trail include Abigail Adams, Phillis Wheatley, Amelia Earhart, Louisa May Alcott, Melnea Cass and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy.

There are 12 stops on the Trail. It starts at the Boston Women’s Memorial on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall (pictured above) between Fairfield and Gloucester Streets and ends at Faneuil Hall.

*Future First Lady Abigail Adams wrote to John Adams: “I long to hear that you have declared an independency. And, by the way, in the new code of laws which I suppose it will be necessary for you to make, I desire you would remember the ladies and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors…If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.”
