In honor of Women’s History Month, every question in this edition of our local news trivia quiz is about memorable Philadelphia women.

Last week, more than 50 people joined us on Zoom for the live edition of Billy Penn Philly Quizzo. Cohosts Danya Henninger and Sakeenah Benjamin led the participants through three rounds about Philadelphia in the past, present, and future, while everyone enjoyed a killer happy hour mix by DJ Bounce Gawd.

The March event was sponsored by Cornerstone Bed & Breakfast, a women-owned business in Powelton Village. The proprietors, who took over the quaint West Philadelphia inn two years ago, said that while the pandemic was tough, they saw many more locals than usual. You don’t have to stay overnight to take advantage of Cornerstone’s brunch, which is served on the porch and the garden — and brunch for two was the prize of the night.

After all three rounds, Fishtown Femme Fatale Society won for best team name, and Lucretia Mott-ley Crue took top honors with the highest number of correct questions.

Now it’s your turn. Without using Google, can you beat their high score of 20/24?

To play, pick your the answers in the “Past,” “Present” and “Future” sections below, then click “Submit” and scroll up to hit “View Score” and see how you did. (That’s where you’ll see the correct answers, too.)

If the form below doesn’t work for you, take the quiz here.
