'Yale Needs Women is a riveting-and long overdue-account of how the first 575 undergraduate women

admitted to previously all-male Yale University in 1969 found themselves doing battle with 268 years of

entrenched male hegemony in an Ivy League setting. Based on extensive interviews and archival research,

Anne Gardiner Perkins weaves a tale of courage in the face of arrogance, frustration giving way to hard-won

triumphs, and the redeeming power of shared visions and friendships. Perkins makes the story of these early

and unwitting feminist pioneers come alive against the backdrop of the contemporaneous civil rights and

anti-war movements of the 1970s, and offers observations that remain eerily relevant on U.S. campuses

today.' - Edward B. Fiske, bestselling author of Fiske Guide to Colleges'Yale Needs Women is a riveting

and uplifting account of the experiences of Yale's early women coeds-first admitted in 1969. It reveals the

multiple barriers faced by these pioneers, as it chronicles their brave efforts to overcome them. Thanks to

these champions of women's rights, with similar efforts across the country, opportunities for women have

improved. The fight is not over. This inspiring book is a 'must read' for everyone.' - Janet L. Yellen,

Distinguished Fellow, Brookings Institution'Yes, Yale needed women, but it didn't really want them. From

the moment they arrived in 1969, the first coeds faced a male administration and culture that regarded them

as sexual objects, isolated them and offered few female mentors. In her compelling account of the

tumultuous early years, Anne Gardiner Perkins tells how these young women met the challenge with

courage and tenacity and forever changed Yale and its chauvinistic motto of graduating 1,000 male leaders

every year.' - Lynn Povich, author of The Good Girls Revolt'Just in time for the 50thanniversary of the first

class of women to enter Yale College, the author's own alma mater, Anne Gardiner Perkins has written an

enjoyable and lively history of this event. Through extensive archival research and in-depth interviews with

forty-two of the women who matriculated in 1969, Perkins focuses on the experiences of five of these

women, recounting both their struggles and their triumphs as they encountered this bastion of male privilege.

This beautifully written history also provides a comprehensive view of the many social and political changes

that faced the young college women of this era as well as pointing out contemporary problems on college

campuses. Yale Needs Women is an important addition to feminist history.' - Henry Louis Gates, Jr.,

Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University, and host of PBS's Finding Your Roots

'Yale Needs Women breaks through the male stronghold that once defined the Ivy League and delivers the

powerful history of a group of young women bold enough to reshape undergraduate education. Perkins'

richly detailed narrative is a reminder that gender equity has never come easily, but instead is borne from the

exertions of those who precede us. You must read this book: not only to understand our past but to glean

critical insight into the future of our academic institutions.' - Nathalia Holt, New York Times bestselling

author of Rise of the Rocket Girls'Perkins tackles the discrimination these brave young women of Yale

faced, the tremendous sexism and racism of the time, with stories that will make this #MeToo generation

shudder and rage. But amidst these darker moments are the stories of women who shined, who triumphed,

who took this opportunity for all that it was worth and showed Yale-and the rest of the country-that women

of all backgrounds possess the intellectual rigor and leadership qualities required to deserve a place at this

Ivy League institution.' - Donna Freitas, author of Consent on Campus'This smart, lively first book by

Perkins, a higher education scholar and Yale graduate, challenges a 'sanitized tale of equity instantly

achieved' when the elite university, after 268 years, admitted female undergraduates in 1969... Perkins

succeeds admirably in restoring these women's fascinating voices and weaving in the larger historical

context. This is a valuable contribution to the history of higher education, women, and the postwar U.S.' -

Publishers Weekly'This stunning, engaging work highlights the strength and courage of women who fought

for their future against centuries of patriarchy. Perfect for readers interested in seeing how far women have

come-and how far they still have yet to go.' - Library Journal, STARRED review'Perkins (Yale class of

1981) does not sugarcoat history, the 360-degree approach she takes makes Yale Needs Women an

engaging, entertaining, thoughtful work of popular h
