Meet the women of Yale: Eleven online exhibits document their impressive legacy
Women have excelled as students, faculty, and leaders at Yale College for 54 years and in Yale’s graduate and professional schools for 154—and they have been involved in the life of the university in other, less visible ways since the founding.
