City of Women reflection

In the essay “city of Women” the author spoke about the contribution the women had in New York City. The author argues that New York City is covered in men’s identities that many of women’s achievement were unknown. She talks about the fact that the works of women was forgotten or were never named.  She mentions the work of Allison Meier who noted that there are only five statues of named women in New York City. before that, only men were commemorated in the statuary of New York City.  On page 86-87 you can see that train tracks have woman’s name alongside it but were not mentioned. This essay showed me that not only men who contributed to the city but there are many women who also contributed to the city we live in.
