Mar. 22 “Badass Women of Chicago History” Storytelling Event

What It’s About

Join us March 22, 2019, for our second annual storytelling event celebrating Women’s History Month. 

At “Badass Women in Chicago History,” the audience won’t hear names they already know, like Jane Addams and Gwendolyn Brooks. True to the Chicago Detours ethos of bringing people to explore stories and places locals don’t even know, the characters presented will be Chicago heroines on the peripheries of history.

We will donate a portion of the ticket sales to the Chicago Women’s Health Center, and everything from the raffle. 

This event in 2018 was a huge success! We sold out and had awesome speakers. Read about it in our recap here.
