5 Events Celebrating Women’s History Month in NYC

Cheers to the ladies!
Since today is International Women’s Day, what better way to celebrate accomplishments of women in the past, present and future than by checking out some of the events happening in the city throughout the month of March. We’ve listed our top five below…
“Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving”

Frida Kahlo is truly one of a kind and her art never fails to inspire. The exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum features her most important paintings, her identity as a whole and personal items that have been kept private for 50 years. If you admire her and her art, this is the perfect way to discover more about her.

WOW: Women of the World Festival

Founded back in 2011 in London, WOW will be held at the Apollo this year and includes talks, films, performances and debates surrounding the feminist movement. Angela Davis is going to be a featured guest along with many other powerful women.

When: March 12th – 17th

Where: Apollo Theater, Harlem

All Female Reboot
This is the funniest event on the list, especially for those of you that are sick of lack of female representation in the movie industry. Liz Magee and her women-led crew take overrated, predominantly male movies and spice them up with their own little twist. Get ready for lots of laughs and some quality jabs at the patriarchy!

When: 

Where: Peoples Improv Theater, Gramercy & Flatiron

Women’s Jazz Festival

Every Monday throughout March the Schomburg Center is hosting some well-known and rising female jazz artists. If you’re looking for a nice way to end your Monday work day, why not listen to some funky music…you might even discover a new favorite!

When: March 11th, 18th & 25th, 7pm

Where: Schomburg Center

Nasty Women @ The Met

Go on a special offer two hour tour around the Met and discover some kick-ass women who have left their mark throughout history. You’ll learn about an Egyptian pharaoh, the first female empress to rule Rome and several women painters (their work refreshingly doesn’t focus on the female body). Get your tickets here

Where: Metropolitan Museum
