The Project


The Women’s L Project honors women of Chicago's past who persevered in a male dominated world to do amazing and life-changing work in the fields of social work, justice, the arts, writing, politics and science.

Sadly, most of these women were not given credit for their work and have been overlooked in history.

The Women's L Project also recognizes contemporary Chicago women who, despite hurdles, are making strong contributions to the city, to society and to the world.

By symbolically renaming L stops after these women and telling their stories, The Women’s L Project hopes to inspire all people to strive for greatness in their lives and positive change in their communities and the world.
