New Orleans is a city with a fascinatin’ rhythm that pitter pats in your brain. And the more you know about the fascinatin’ women who shaped and preserved the 300-year-old French Quarter the stronger that rhythm is. Music, French culture, and Creole food – the signature symbols of our city – were shaped by women. What sister jazz group influenced Ella Fitzgerald and the Andrews sisters? Who saved the French Opera from failure?
Why did women have a 71% literacy rate in 1751? And which were our richest females in the 1700s and 1800s? Come and learn. As we walk in the footsteps of these dramatic and inspiring women of New Orleans, you will learn why and how the city has been a hotbed of female initiative and entrepreneurship since its founding.
We travel across the centuries to meet many women. These include indentured servants and prostitutes plucked off the streets of Paris and shipped to the colony under protest. We will also learn about the Ursuline Nuns as well as the free women of color such as Marie Laveau and Henriette DeLille. You will also get to know the amazing Baroness Pontalba.
