1949: AAUW Members Look at College Education

Drawing on research conducted in 1948, 30,000 AAUW women, representing at the time 28 percent of the total membership, responded to questions such as, “If you think about your college education, in what ways do you feel it is of value to your life today?” These responses were tabulated into a report, the ultimate goal of which was to suggest improvements to the college experience for women.
