Women's Colleges Promote Scientific Success in
Holyoke College joined with dozens of other members of the Women's
College Coalition to put together a full page advertisement in the Sunday,
March 20, New York Times promoting the longstanding and ongoing success
that women's colleges have had in educating women in the sciences--an
powerful message in Women's History Month.
Creighton, chair of the Coalition's advocacy committee, has played
a significant role
in building a
working relationship, now in its founding stages, between the Times
and the WCC, and more directly between the Times and Mount Holyoke.
between the Times and the WCC has already brought opportunities to
students here. Last June, three Mount Holyoke students joined
women from 26 other
institutions at the Times to discuss strategies to encourage
American women to vote. Also
sponsoring these sessions, which helped inform a very successful
voter registration drive on campus this fall, was Vote,
Run, Lead, a nationwide,
of the White House Project designed to mobilize women's political
power and close the leadership gap in this country.
