Over the years because of different comments and my own thoughts about my life, I have wondered how different my life might have been had I gone to Harvard or Yale. I had the grades, the test scores, IQ, all the credentials. What might have happened had I applied?
The answer is I would not have been admitted because I am a woman!
Yale became coed for the first time in 1969 and Harvard in 1977 when it merged with Barnard. But because I am now so used to women being able to attend any university they have the grades for, I had lost the perspective of timing.
I believe you just may be in for several history blogs as I am realizing I lived on the cutting edge of the women’s rights movement. Stay tuned ~
