    Spotlight: Breaking and Making Tradition: Women at the University of Virginia

    In 1970, 450 undergraduate women arrived on Grounds as part of the University of Virginia's first fully coeducational class. Although the U.Va. that they encountered was still very much a man's university, they were by no means the first women to make their mark here. This exhibition highlights the experiences of some of the first women to live, study, and work at the University, who paved the way for full coeducation.
