This Day in the History of American Strides in Gender Equality

On this day in 1833, Oberlin College in Ohio started classes as the first coed institution of higher learning in the United States.

I recall meeting, in 1972, a guy who was going to newly coed Vassar in Poughkeepsie, NY. My school had a ratio of men to women of 2 to 1. He mentioned a ratio of men to women of 1 to 175. I asked him how that was working out and he answered with one word: Heaven. No doubt.
