Gender Change for 270 of London’s Underground Stations

Inspired by the “City of Women” subway map in New York City, USA, celebrity actor Emma Watson and award-winning author Reni Eddo-Lodge are recreating England’s London Tube map, with stations renamed after iconic women and non-binary people linked with the city.

“This offering is inspired by all the women and non-binary people who have shaped London’s history,” say the project organizers in a statement, “as well as other projects that have already done much to re-imagine the city from a similar perspective.”

With 270 stations to be renamed, the team is asking the public for their suggestions on who they would like to nominate and why. Haymarket Books, a publisher based in Chicago, United States, will launch the new tube map on March 8, 2021 – in celebration of the next International Women’s Day.
