Share the badassery!

At “Badass Women of Chicago History” the audience won’t hear the names they already know, like Jane Addams and Gwendolyn Brooks. True to the Chicago Detours ethos of sharing stories and places locals don’t even know. Instead, the characters presented will be Chicago heroines on the peripheries of history.
