This Week in the Voice: The vagina dialogue—women’s integration at Georgetown
In this week’s feature, Julia Tanaka delves into Georgetown history, looking at the University’s transition to a co-ed institution and its progress dealing with women’s issues on campus.
In the fall of 1969, Georgetown’s College of Arts and Sciences admitted its first class of female students. Fifty women were added to the student body, and the administration planned to expand the class size to make it clear that women were not taking spots from deserving males. These 50 women were the first to break a long tradition of single-sex education in the College, which the constituted the majority of the undergraduate student body.
