In 1891, the first women were admitted to the Women's College at Brown University. Women now represent more than half of Brown's alumni.
"I am immensely proud of the work being done by the Women's Leadership Council at Brown. Women have always played a major role in the University's development and the fulfillment of its mission. The Council's efforts aim to highlight these contributions, to nurture the talents of the next generation of female leaders, and to inspire the involvement of more women in shaping a brilliant future for Brown."
- President Christina Hull Paxson
