Center for Gender Studies organizes exhibit on University of Chicago women

The University of Chicago Magazine reports on a new exhibit at Regenstein LIbrary on the history of female students at the University of Chicago. From the article:

The 1960s and ’70s marked a shift in how women viewed themselves, says history PhD student Katherine Turk, AM’07, who helped organized a Special Collections exhibit on Chicago’s female students. Though the early 20th century U of C women—by rule—lived and socialized apart from men, and many scholars faced discrimination … For the exhibit “On Equal Terms”: Education Women at the University of Chicago—up through July 14—Turk and Monica Mercado, AM’06, used archival documents from the Center for Gender Studies’ History of Women Project, such as this women’s-lib meeting poster from 1968. The goal: to tell the story of women’s integration into the curriculum and the community.

The exhibit runs through July 14. See the Library’s page and this University feature article for more information.
