Yale Needs Women: How the First Group of Girls Rewrote the Rules of an Ivy League Giant
Yale University, along with the rest of the Ivy League, kept its gates closed to women until the class of 1969. The reason for letting them in? As an incentive for men to attend. Perfect for readers of Hidden Figures and Rise of the Rocket Girls, Yale Needs Women is the story of why the most elite schools in the nation refused women for so long, and what the first women to enter those halls faced when they stepped onto campus.
