Welcome to Queens of Queen City! We are dedicated to uncovering forgotten histories and successes of the Greater Cincinnati Area’s women in essays, podcasts, interviews, photos and video tours.
Cincinnati is a city of firsts–a city of revolution, a city of culture, a city of science. It once ruled alongside New York City and New Orleans as a major city of destination and advancement. We say it still is, but now the public has been disengaged from its real history and importance. Women’s roles in the city’s history are a large part of that. We aim to shed light on the women we discovered–the women who have changed the arts, sciences, trades, politics and environmental health.
These are the women who have changed our lives, and we just haven’t known it.
