What would your daily commute look like if it celebrated remarkable women and non-binary people who have shaped our city? Instead of jumping off at Bond Street, Notting Hill Gate, Warren Street, Paddington, Euston Square, Waterloo, Bank or Lancaster Gate, what if you were invited to mind the gap at Audrey Hepburn, Claudia Jones, Virginia Woolf, Mary Seacole, Noor Inayat Khan, Agnes Beckwith, Boudica or Jung Chang?
City of Women encourages Londoners to take a second glance at places we might once have taken for granted by reimagining the iconic Underground map.
Brought to you by Reni Eddo-Lodge, Rebecca Solnit, and Emma Watson, this new map celebrates the lives of women and non-binary people who have left a lasting impact on the city. Launched on International Women’s Day 2022 in partnership with Transport for London, City of Women replaces the names of familiar stations with household names and unsung heroes from arts, sports, activism, science, media, law, medicine and beyond.
