City of Women
Rebecca Solnit, The New Yorker, October 11, 2016


« Walking down the city streets, young women get harassed in ways that tell them that this is not their world, their city, their street »

« In the map “City of Women”—which appears in the forthcoming book “Nonstop Metropolis,” a creative atlas of New York City that I co-authored with Joshua Jelly-Schapiro—we tried on what it would look like to live in such power, by paying homage to some of the great and significant women of New York City in the places where they lived, worked, competed, went to school, danced, painted, wrote, rebelled, organized, philosophized, taught, and made names for themselves ».
