How the First Group of Girls Rewrote the Rules of an Ivy League Giant, a History Book Talk & Signing
Author Anne Gardiner Perkins will discuss and sign Yale Needs Women: How the First Group of Girls Rewrote the Rules of an Ivy League Giant ($25.99 Sourcebooks), the unflinching account of a group of young women striving for change is an inspiring story of strength, resilience, and courage that continues to resonate today.
The experience the first undergraduate women found when they stepped into Yale was not the same one their male peers enjoyed. Isolated from one another and barred from many privileges, they found themselves immersed in a male culture they were unprepared to face. This is the story of how these young women fought against the backward-leaning traditions of a centuries-old institution and created the opportunities that would carry them into the future.
