A review of the struggle undertaken in order to integrate women into Columbia University.
Women's History Month
Rebeka Cohan and Emma Goss explore the Barnard's multi-layered relationship with Columbia, and the obstacles women have faced in ascending to leadership roles at the University.
Women’s History Month, which starts March 7, will focus on what it means to be a woman and the intersections between womanhood and other identities.
We need to create a course that covers the basics of privilege.
Why should we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month? So that women do not disappear again from history.
There is hope and joy in reclaiming these women’s stories. What’s more, there is justice in it.
Thinking back to those U.S. history textbooks we all had in the seventh grade, it’s hard to remember more than a chapter devoted to the lives of women. Judging only from those textbooks, it would appear that, every hundred years or so, a brilliant woman came around and revolutionized medicine, technology, or politics.
If rights are denied to women based on the distinction society has created between men and women, then gender distinctions create and perpetuate gender hierarchies.
In March—Women’s History Month—of 2005, I applied to Columbia. As I filled in the blanks, I felt change descend upon my family and myself.
This Women’s History Month begins as Columbia College rings in its 25th anniversary of coeducation and hires its first female dean, Michele Moody-Adams.
