Downtown Pittsburgh
September 17
1 – 4:30 p.m.

Want to spend your Sunday afternoon learning about local history? Well…

Let us rephrase that: Want to spend your Sunday on a topsy-turvy search for hidden objects and forgotten tales?  Well then!

You may never make it onto The Amazing Race, but the Pittsburgh Women’s History Scavenger Hunt will have you darting through Downtown as you learn about local women’s history along the way.

Not many details have been revealed about the hunt (because that would spoil the fun), but organizers promise prizes for the winners, and there will even be current women leaders of Pittsburgh participating in the event to reveal clues along the way.

The focus is on women from the Pittsburgh area who have contributed to both civil and women’s rights. Along the way, participants will learn more about the places and people who have struggled to create a more just society on the local and national level.

The event is being held in conjunction with the launch for Women’s Yellow Pages, a directory of women-owned businesses being published by Women’s Independent Press.

Afterward, head to the stately Twentieth Century Club for a reception featuring entertainment and refreshments. Get tickets.
