DEFINITION
  • In the United States, women were not admitted to college until 1837, and it took the Civil War, declining enrollments, and over 30 years for more colleges to expand their admissions to include women. By 1900, 70 percent of higher education institutions were coeducational, and women accounted for approximately 30 percent of the student body.
