The Paris Metro map has been redesigned numerous times, but this time it is in the likes of famous, historic women. French artist Silvia Radelli wanted to shine light on the fact that very few women have had a subway station named after them. She re-created this map, titled 'Métroféminin,' with every single station named after women who've made significant contributions to not only Paris, but the world.

The women featured range from political figures to artists, and designers. Some well-known names include artist Frida Khalo, author Jane Austen, actress Marlene Dietrich and fashion designer Coco Chanel.

Next time you're in Paris, hop on a Georgia O'Keefe-bound train or ride along the Hellen Keller line. The map is currently on display at Paris’s Galerie L'Aléatoire.
