Explores the lives of female 19th century activists in NYC through photographs, garments, paintings, and prints. Learn about Elizabeth Jennings Graham, an African-American New Yorker who refused to get off a segregated trolley; professionals like Hetty Green, a wealthy businesswoman and broker branded “the witch of Wall Street”; and working women like Helen Jewett, New York’s most prominent courtesan—all of whom challenged the Victorian ideal.
