In Celebration of 50 Women at Yale 150
The 50th anniversary of the matriculation of women in Yale College and the 150th anniversary of women at the Graduate and Professional schools
Monday, Sept 9th at 6:30 at the Cheshire Public Library, 104 Main Street, Cheshire, CT
Talk with the Author: In Yale Needs Women: How the First Group of Girls Rewrote the Rules of an Ivy League Giant, Anne Gardiner Perkins ’81 shares the stories of five Yale alums in the early years of coeducation.
“In September 1969, the women’s movement was just beginning. The phrase ‘sexual harassment’ had not yet been invented. The Black Power movement was changing how Americans saw race. The youth movement was forcing the nation to take notice of how the next generation saw the world. And into that moment stepped the first women undergraduates of Yale.”
Anne will be joined in conversation by Connie Royster '72.
YaleWomen CT wants to make sure you know about the book talks at which Anne will speak. While this is not a YaleWomen CT event, some Yale women alums plan to attend and we hope you will join us for what promises to be a thought provoking conversation! You need to register with the library for this event. But so that we can keep our eyes open for you, please let the CT Chapter Ambassador for the evening – Elvira Duran ‘05 – know that you plan to come (firstname.lastname@example.org)
