After the Tour
Thanks again for joining me on the SHE THE PEOPLE tour! Like the book, the tour is meant as a launching off experience that leads to further research and exploration.
With that in mind, here are some links to additional resources to help you with any questions or fascinations the tour might have awakened in you.

They offer a wide array of walking tours that are go more deeply into different subjects than I get to on my more generalized tour. There are also self guided tours available on their websites as well as books to buy. Do check it out:
