Full description

Discover why Belgium has been marked by the presence of women who triumphed in history despite all the inconveniences and obstacles they encountered along the way. Brussels tells of the advancement of female protagonists and their role in the development of the country.

Meet in one of the most coveted locations in the European capital from the 12th to the 18th century: the Royal Court Quarter. During the walk, admire the power of the queens to the masses of the Protestant shepherdesses and the Guardians of the Holy Sepulcher.

Go down towards the historical center from the Mont des Arts (Mount of Arts). This is a privileged spot in the city for photography and attracts everyone's attention. Learn the relationship of women workers with the famous Expo 58 Atomium sculpture, a signature of Brussels.

Discover the history of the little girl statue, Jeanneke Pis, half-hidden in the privacy of a small alley, who is pissing in full view of prying eyes.

Go to the Théâtre La Monnaie, the home of an explosion of revolutionary revolts in the 19th century. Learn about the role of women in conflicts such as Belgian independence and the world wars. Lastly, see Rue Neuve where some girls from Karl Marx family lived in exile.
