Marking the 150th anniversary of women’s education at Northwestern, this exhibition uses documents, images, and artifacts from the University Archives to examine the Board of Trustees’ decision, in 1869, “to allow the admission of young women to the classes of the University upon the same terms and conditions as young men…,” and looks at the complexities involved in interpreting and applying “the same terms and conditions” over the next century and a half.
