111 Places in Woman's History in Washington, DC
That You Must Not Miss


Women's history is tucked away in the four corners of the nation's capital, ready to be uncovered by curious locals and adventurous tourists. A city built by the founding fathers has now emerged as a community where often forgotten women lead and thrive. This city guidebook reveals the diverse history, both celebrated and hidden, of our founding mothers while also celebrating modern women who are shaping Washington, DC's vibrant culture.

Kaitlin Calogera

Kaitlin Calogera embarked on a journey of entrepreneurship when she launched A Tour Of Her Own, the first tourism company in Washington, DC to focus exclusively on women’s history. As a licensed tour guide, she recognized a lack of women’s stories being represented in public spaces so she mobilized her community to reframe the traditional narrative through special events and historical tours. With a degree in History and a background coaching women’s athletics, Kaitlin believes in the power of tourism to promote gender equality and education beyond the classroom.
