Every badass history has a badass HERSTORY
JWalk Tours presents Charleston's most unique walking tour, "Badass Broads of Charleston." This is a walk where we may step outside of the lines just a bit but we consider it a homage to these ladies who sometimes had to step way outside of the lines and defy the conventions of their day to make their marks. JWalk Tours is proud to tell you about a few of the badass ladies who you'll discover are a vibrant part of Charleston's story. A story that is, unfortunately, relegated to back pages of history and often untold.
You will get to know one of America's first rebels, a Revolutionary War hero who threw herself into that monumental effort. We'll get into some darker history and meet a villain of sorts who stepped far outside the lines as one of the most famous female pirates of all time. More than a few of our early feminists shaped our history by speaking out against social injustice and railing against the evils of slavery in an economy that was largely driven by it. Post-slavery era, you'll meet the daughter of a former slave who Martin Luther King referred to as "The Grandmother of the Movement."
There is so much more we want to share with you! We look forward to seeing you on our newly launched Badass Broads Tour.
