History of Women at Vanderbilt

The History of Women at Vanderbilt presentation explores women’s experiences at Vanderbilt from the university’s nineteenth-century beginnings to the present day. It considers both the inclusion women enjoyed and the exclusion they faced as students, faculty, and staff at Vanderbilt, which only began to admit women and men undergraduates in equal numbers in the 1980s.
