Full description
Find out all about feminism, fascism, resistance, and the fight for equality through the lives of the women of Berlin. Start your tour at Hackescher Markt, in the heart of Berlin's Mitte district. Cross over Museum Island and walk through the charming city center streets as you learn about Berlin's many extraordinary women. Discover the known and lesser known stories of feminist May Ayim, the world's first female Rabbi Regina Jonas, hear about Rosa Luxemburg and Marlene Dietrich, and learn how German women were left to remove the rubble from post-WWII Berlin’s streets by hand in 1945.
