Nailed it

November 3, 2008 at 10:04 pm (if I ruled the world)

Obviously, I agree:

At women’s colleges, we are encouraged to be successful, and to go for it, whatever “it” may be. When we’re at school, we get to run the show, and we gain the confidence to be leaders when we leave. That’s how I know that my college and other women’s colleges remain relevant and valuable – and that they’re more than niche schools in the pantheon of higher education. They have taught generations of students to never, ever, question whether a woman, properly qualified, can realize her dreams. That’s one cliche that can’t be taught enough.
