Educating Women at Gettysburg College: Progress and Pushback


Special Collections Reading Room, 4th floor Musselman Library
7 February - 9 December 2022
Monday-Friday 1-5 PM, Tuesday & Wednesday 6-9PM

Gettysburg College has been educating women since 1885.  Despite this early entry into co-education, there has always been pushback against women. A new exhibit in Special Collections and College Archives, Musselman Library, explores the steps forward made by Gettysburg College women and the challenges they faced in the classroom, on the field, and in life on campus. Co-curated by Abigail Adam ’22 and Alicia Method ’23, Educating Women at Gettysburg College: Progress and Pushback uses archival documents, photographs, and artifacts to relate over a century of women’s experiences.
