5 NYC women who aren’t famous, but should be

A Center for the Study of Women’s History, dedicated to celebrating the crucial role that New York women played in our nation’s social, political and cultural evolution, is due to open in 2016 at the New-York Historical Society Museum & Library.

The Museum will showcase the accomplishments of famous women as well as those of women not as widely known. In the meantime — and in honor of Women’s History Month — we’d like to give a shout out to five super cool NYC women who deserve our recognition and respect.
