Description


The iconic 20" x 20" "City of Women" map, updated for 2019 with dozens of new NYC icons including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cardi B, and all the All-Girl Robotics Teams of the Bronx.

"How does it impact our imaginations that so many places in so many cities are named after men and so few after women? What kind of landscape do we move through when streets and parks and statues and bridges are gendered--Astor Place, Lafayette Street, Madison Avenue, Lincoln Center, Washington Square, the Frick, Rockefeller Center, Penn Station, the Bronx, the Hudson--and it's usually one gender, and not another? What kind of silence arises in places that so seldom speak of and to women? This map was made to sing the praises of the extraordinary women who have, since the beginning, been shapers and heroes of this city that has always been, secretly, a City of Women. And why not the subway? This is a history still emerging from underground, a reminder that it's all connected, and that we get around." --Rebecca Solnit

Cartography by Molly Roy. Design by Lia Tjandra. Adapted from the original NYC Subway Map.
