 Rebel Women: Defying Victorianism, on view at the Museum of the City of New York from through January 6, 2019, will explore the trailblazing women who challenged Victorian social norms in 19th-century New York City. Featuring photographs, garments, ephemera, and prints primarily drawn from the Museum’s collections, the exhibition will bring to light the compelling and often untold stories of these independent and unconventional women who had an indelible impact on New York’s society, culture, and economy by the turn of the 20th century.
