Discover the lives and locations of trailblazing women who changed the course of history as you journey to the heart of women's activism, history and creativity through the ages.

From the temple of Queen Hatshepsut in Egypt and Empress Dowager Cixi's summer palace in Beijing, to the homes and meeting sites of suffragette heroes Sylvia Pankhurst and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the creative workrooms of Frida Kahlo and Virginia Woolf, and the tennis courts where the Williams sisters first learned to play - we showcase female pioneers whose lives and actions continue to inspire today.

In Her Footsteps is not only a celebration of incredible women, but a travel guide to the places where they studied, lived, worked, reigned and explored. We'll tell you where to find the secret feminist history of sites around the world.
