It’s easy to find portraits and statues of men on campus, but you have to look a little harder for the women. In a project that grew out of the 40th anniversary of coeducation in Yale College, the Women Faculty Forum has developed a self-guided women’s history tour of the campus. The tour includes sites like Street Hall, where the School of Fine Arts admitted Yale’'s first women students in 1869. It also points out female faces, from the current—such as Yale College dean Mary Miller ’81PhD, whose portrait hangs in Saybrook College—to the ancient: Alma Mater herself, in Sterling Memorial Library’s mural.
