The tour

Ten women, who played an indelible role in Amsterdam, are reviewed. They lived and worked in the capital in the 20th century. They went for their ideals, buried themselves in endless books, made only what they really liked and set up various associations because they wanted to realize their ideals.

    For example, it was only normal for Wilhelmina to claim what she was entitled to and she did not shy away from very unconventional solutions.
    Regardless of who was in front of the lens at Mies, she photographed everyone, but in her own way. And you can still see that now.
    'I am threefold handicapped; lesbian, feminist and Jewish, ”Annemarie said, but she still went for the best.


The route

See the city through the eyes of women throughout the 20th century. Some women walked the streets for a hundred years, others for 10 years.
History is there for the taking in Amsterdam. We start in the heart of old Amsterdam, on the Boys Square of the Amsterdam Museum. Then we walk via the canal belt towards the Leidseplein and then return to the Boys Square via the canals.
