Airbnb Shares Experiences That Honor Women Who Have Shaped History

As part of the celebrations around Women’s History Month, which honor the amazing cultural, social, economic, and political achievements of women, Airbnb is showcasing an array of Experiences that celebrate some of the women who have shaped world history.

Experience hosts everywhere–from Split to Santiago–are teaching their guests about the achievements of women who have changed their local communities and the world. And the best part is, these Experiences are available year-round, so travelers and locals alike can celebrate women’s history every month.

See below for a selection of Experiences that highlight many women’s feats around the world:

Take a stroll through the streets of Santiago and visit iconic locales symbolizing feminism and the continuing work to advance women’s rights. From learning about some of Chile’s powerful women politicians, like Chile’s first woman President, to visiting women-owned businesses you will get a glimpse at how females influenced Santiago. Part of the reservation will go towards Tours with Meaning, a nonprofit working to end sexual harassment.

See a different side of London with host and guide Amy. On this fully narrated walk, guests will explore aspects of the city’s most powerful females — from suffragettes to nurses and construction workers who built the Waterloo Bridge. This is a Social Impact Experience to boot, and all proceeds go to Child.org which provides benefits to women and their babies in third world countries.

HerStory of Split Split, Croatia

Channel your inner feminist while touring the historic buildings that housed the women’s right movement and learn about the current issues women are facing in Split.
