Did you know that most Ivy League schools did not admit women until the 1960s and 1970s?
How has gender equity been influenced by the historical landscape of higher education? Join the Mather Center to learn more about how gender equity shapes the experiences of women-identified individuals and how they attain their education.
In this workshop we review the history of women in higher education, where we are now, how bias, stereotypes, and sexism influence violence in our community and how to combat microaggressions. Through a video case study we put your new skills to work in disrupting gender discrimination in our community.
