YALE NEEDS WOMEN How the First Group of Girls Rewrote the Rules of an Ivy League Giant

by | Read by Erin Bennett

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

In 1969, Yale University first welcomed women undergraduates. Erin Bennett's narration is an excellent companion to this account of the challenges these women faced amid this monumental change. Bennett's voice is clear and precise, never wavering even as she describes the isolation, sexual harassment, flagrant injustices, and rampant sexism these women had to navigate in order to gain the prestigious Yale degree. Her engagement with the audiobook, especially the parts where she describes the women's thoughts, adds authority to the material, creating a fascinating listening experience. An inspiring story about fighting longstanding backward traditions still resonates in today's political climate. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
