"The history of women in higher education reflects a constant battle for access and equity. Although the number of
post-secondary institutions steadily increased after Harvard University opened
its doors in 1636, almost two hundred years would pass before women students
were allowed at some institutions. In the last 50 years, the number of women
graduating from four-year institutions has dramatically increased. The same
delayed access for women students to gain admittance mirrors the challenges
that women faculty and staff have seen in obtaining leadership roles within
higher education. Despite enrollment numbers that indicate women students are
enrolling and graduating at faster rates than their male counterparts, very
few women attain the highest level of leadership within a university. Several
reasons for this lack of representation include historical inequalities, stereotypical
notions about women's leadership styles, the presence of a chilly climate on
college campuses, and the male-dominated history of academia, which can impact
the speed of advancement and professional options for women."
