Since its founding, Philadelphia has been known as The City of Brotherly Love, with its name literally taken from the Greek Philos for “beloved” and adelphos for “brotherly”. But in celebration of the 19th amendment’s ratification on August 18, 1920, which granted women in America the right to vote, Pennsylvania’s largest city will flip the gender roles with its moniker.

Passed last week by the city council, Philly will now be known as “The City of Sisterly Love” for the remainder of 2020 to honor the women’s suffrage movement.

Visit Philadelphia, the city’s tourism arm, is launching a campaign to encourage women from around the world to visit and to learn about women’s contributions to the city.
