Most people can easily recite the names of prominent men who built Detroit, but how many can identify the women?

Women have contributed greatly to the American way of life and their influences on Detroit’s legacy are no different. From brokering treaties or managing the first European settlement to advocating for social and economic justice, breaking barriers in education or business, and designing a better Detroit through the arts, these are just a few examples of how local women have been leading the way for centuries.

Plus, you’ll hear about some fantastic women making a difference today.
