Inspiring OEP Moments at Yale

Priya Natarajan, Yale professor of astronomy and physics, chair of the Women’s Faculty Forum, and a pilot member of The OpEd Project’s Public Voices Thought Leadership Project at Yale, gave Katie a tour of campus this past week.  Here Priya stands before the “Women’s Table” a sculpture designed by the acclaimed Maya Lin, which represents the number of women at Yale as a function of time.  Looking at the first couple of centuries, Priya notes that  “there are a lot of zeroes.”  In 1873, the sculpture shows 13 women – the first women scholars at Yale. Undergraduate women were finally  admitted in 1969.
