DIY walking tour chinatown, NYC women's history

We put Women on the Map

Women Imprint is an independent U.S.-based nonprofit organization that documents the imprint of women (cis, transgender, nonbinary) whose lives and actions continue to inspire today. We do this by creating carefully curated walking tours of women's history, through a podcast, and through our outreach program.

Women Imprint's core mission lies in fostering greater representation of women creatives in the public space.

Book: Walking Women's History

We document creative women who have lived in certain places and left a mark. This is done through curated walking tours. The stops in each tour can be seen as a memorial to women who are all too often left out of public dedications. They provide information for travelers and locals alike to visit places in a fun, easy, and accessible way. At the same time, they can also be read as "armchair travels", educating the reader from home. They are a celebration of women's history.

Podcast: Portrait Series

We record female creatives by interviewing women working today in our "Portrait Series". Through these conversations, Women Imprint facilitates the archiving of personal biographies that come to life through the creative’s own voice. Ownership and interpretation of personal history is to Women Imprint a right and "Portrait Series" therefore an archival mission in our strategy for change. 

Community Outreach 

As a nonprofit, contributing to our communities' well-being is a cornerstone of our mission. Through our outreach program, we specifically work with girls and women, oftentimes in collaboration with other institutions. Our goals are, among others, to give educational support and help uproot poverty on a larger scale, to inspire and uplift, and to bring joy. Through this program, we aim to create a space where our participants feel like they are not alone in their journey.
