From 1920-1945, there was significant expansion and reforms in higher education. Reflect upon the opportunities to attend college for women during this time period. Women made up about 40% of the undergraduate enrollments in 1940. This was remarkable considering that women were not permitted to earn a bachelor’s degree just 60 years prior to 1940. Also of significance were the women’s colleges of the privileged elite such as Wellesley, Radcliffe, Smith, Vassar, and Barnard to name a few. Examine colleges for women during this time period and compare them to your educational experiences today.
