Women's History Month

 

For Women's History Month, WYEP is taking a uniquely Pittsburgh perspective with a guided tour through Homewood cemetery. Listen on the air throughout March to catch brief vignettes about women who were famous, infamous, inspiring, or unsung heroines of their day to discover another side of Pittsburgh history.

 

This project was made possible with the help of The Homewood Cemetery Historical Fund.
