Women's Colleges Promote Scientific Success in
N.Y. Times

Mount 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 especially powerful message in Women's History Month.

President 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. The evolving partnership 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, nonpartisan program of the White House Project designed to mobilize women's political power and close the leadership gap in this country.
