Challenged by Coeducation: Women's Colleges Since the 1960s
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungChallenged by Coeducation details the responses of women's colleges to the most recent wave of coeducation in the mid-twentieth century. Case studies written expressly for this volume include many types of women's colleges: Catholic and secular; Seven Sisters and less prestigious; private and state; liberal arts and more applied; northern, southern, and western; urban and rural; independent and coordinated with a coeducational institution. Despite their dramatic drop in numbers, from 250 to fewer than 60 today, women's colleges are still important, editors Miller-Bernal and Poulson argue. With their commitment to enhancing women's lives, women's colleges and formerly women's colleges can serve as models of egalitarian coeducation.
