Effing Chicago Tours: Badass Women of Chicago

It’s been said that well behaved women rarely make history. But sometimes even “bad” girls get shoved aside so that men can take the spotlight. Enough of that bullshit, this tour is all about Chicago’s colorful and impressive female past. From criminals who faked tuberculosis to get out jail, to an artist who got their start as a vaudeville cowgirl, to groundbreakers in design and architecture of modern society, let our guides show you some of our so-nearly-forgotten gals!

This tour is usually led by MANDY, but sometimes PATTI, too.
