What's In A Women's College?

Rachel Hennessey is a senior at Scripps College, a women’s college in Claremont, California. Currently she is an intern at Forbes. Her article was published in Forbes Magazine on 2/06/2013. 

In this article, Rachel writes, “By attending a women’s college, females are driven to tackle traditionally male-dominated areas in academics and clubs. The argument that these female students are living in a competition-free oasis that does not represent the “real world” undermines the fact women certainly have one another to compete with! Choosing to attend a women’s school is the opposite of “comfortable” because it challenges students to step outside of gender norms and engage in new leadership roles.”
