We have witnessed a meteoric rise in numbers of college-educated American women within mere generations. Compared to 41 percent in 1970, women made up 57 percent of the students enrolled in degree-granting postsecondary institutions in the United States in the fall of 2014. Yet, even as women continue to outpace their male peers in college, how has educational policy impacted our educational opportunities and what does academic success look like for minority students? Join the National Women's History Museum's Council XIX for a panel discussion on the history of American women on campus and what we can do to ensure the success of women in school today.
