La guide de voyage USA

A guide on the US that puts women at the heart of travel

About the project

During a trip, finding information about women in the country you’re in, feels like looking for a needle in a haystack. Yet, there’s so much to discover. In every country around the world, women have made history, women artists have produced amazing art, and women in action are changing society. That’s why La Guide de voyage, our non-profit, published last year the first travel guide focused on women: La Guide de voyage Paris, published thanks to a crowdfunding campaign like this one.

We are now ready to create our second guide, a travel guide of the US.

Join us in this adventure and help us produce – in French and in English – this travel guide unlike any other, that will show you another face of America.

A GUIDE THAT PUTS WOMEN AT THE HEART OF TRAVEL

Inspiring. Amazing. Innovating. Famous or unknown, in the present or in the past, in the US, women have been making history. Follow the guide and discover this fascinating and complex country from another perspective.

Like any travel guide, ours will guide your steps through a selection of must-go places, around the country. But here’s the twist: in every location, this guide highlights the extraordinary women who have made the rich history, culture and legacy of the country.

With this guide, travelers will (re)discover the US following the footsteps of Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Joan Baez. It will show you fantastic artworks by women artists in museums, tell you about how women contributed to the Revolution, show you the feminists struggles of today and yesterday, and so much more!

La Guide de Voyage’s travel guide to the US includes first and foremost places to visit. It takes you to major museums, through the women artists displayed, places the spotlight on women in historical places and offers self-guided tours to uncover the legacy of women around the country.

Completed with historical box texts, practical information, restaurants and stores, it is a perfect travel companion for an American experience off the beaten path.

What are the funds for?

What will this guide look like?

A 500 pages, pocket edition, including regional and local maps, it is illustrated with portraits of famous American women.

Light and practical, it is an elegant object, you’ll want to offer as gift – and keep a copy for yourself!

To give you an idea, here’s what our first guide, on Paris, published last year looked like:

 What are the funds for?

The money from your pre-order will allow us to pay for the lay-out and print the book in its French version, in the first semester of 2019.

If we reach enough pre-orders, we’ll be able to translate and publish an English version of the guide.

All the money we collect through this crowdfunding campaign will be used to produce the guide and the gifts:
