'Boston Women's Heritage Trail': in their own footsteps

BOSTON WOMEN'S HERITAGE TRAIL Curious Traveller Press 80 pp., $9.95

Since it's women's history month, New England visitors might want to learn more about how Boston women played a role in spearheading progress.

"Boston Women's Heritage Trail," a guidebook with walking tours and maps, takes visitors through the meeting halls and homes of women abolitionists, suffragists, artists, and writers. Here are a few stops:

*Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, places where women held fairs, protest meetings, and anti-slavery bazaars.

*The Beacon Hill home of Louisa May Alcott, best known for her book "Little Women," which describes her family life in Concord, Mass.

*Old City Hall, where in 1875 six women first took their seats on the Boston School Committee, which was elected by men.

*Chauncy Hall, former home of the Woman's Journal, started in 1870.
