This map, titled “Women’s Rights, Historic Sites: A Manhattan Map of Milestones,” marks 120 Manhattan sites where significant figures in the history of women lived, worked or have been honored (with statues, plaques, monuments and street signs). As Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer writes, “The Map is an instant history lesson, or rather herstory lesson, for us all.  The map was created by NCWHS Board member Pam Elam, in 2008 when she was Deputy Chief of Staff to the Manhattan Borough President.
