Now running BADASS WOMEN OF AMSTERDAM

Learn the history of Amsterdam through the stories of the badass women who helped create it on this private walking tour. Throughout much of Amsterdam's history, women had more freedom to act independently, and some took great advantage of it! Badass Tours takes you to special sites in historic Amsterdam to tell stories of individual women who fought, wrote, calculated, and led to chart their course through Amsterdam's chaotic and complicated past.

The roughly 2.5 hour walk starts at Central Station and goes through historical Amsterdam Centrum and the canal belt, ending at the Westerkerk and the Anne Frank Huis. Highlights include:

-Cafe 't Mandje and the legend of the woman who opened the first modern gay bar in Amsterdam despite morality laws

-The Oude Kerk and the story of the woman who fought to inherit Amsterdam

-The Begijnhof and the tale of the Countess who fought for independence for women and merchants, only to see them turn against her

-Rembrandtplein and the drama of the woman who started a class riot by lifting her skirt

-Atria Institute on Women's History and the narrative of the woman who fought for education, birth control, better labor conditions, and the right to vote

-The Golden Bend and the chronicle of the poet who embodied its intellectual outpouring

-The Golden Age Amsterdam theater and the fable of the playwright who faced the choice of whether to write or to marry
