11:00 - "One Step More": Women's History Walk
One Step More: A Walking Tour of Women’s History in Oberlin - Oberlin College's Commencement/Reunion Weekend Offering:
Saturday, May 21 at 11:00 AM

In 1834, John J. Shipherd pledged Oberlin’s commitment to “the elevation of female character” through education. Little did he know, there was dynamite in that promise, and women carried the matches. This 75-minute walking tour explores how powerful women like Lucy Stone, Antoinette Brown Blackwell, Anna Julia Cooper, and Lucy Stanton Day made good on Shipherd’s promise and shaped what it meant to be a woman in Oberlin and beyond.

Space is limited, reservation recommended.

This walking tour begins at the northwest corner of Main and College Streets (near the flagpoles). If it is raining at the start of the tour, the reservation will be transferred or refunded.
