NASPA Journal about Women in Higher Education
This chronicle of the National Association for Women in Education (NAWE) from 1916 –2000 examines the contributions the association and its leaders made to the advancement of women administrators, faculty, and students during its 84-year history. Established at the turn of the 20th century when women still lacked the right to vote, the association's founding members, the deans of women, set a high standard for their profession and their students, placing advocacy for women front and center. Although NAWE came to an end at the turn of the 21st century, the association left a significant legacy worthy of its original mission and intent.
