League of Women
By Deborah Shapiro (GSAS ’16)
The League of Women at NYU arose in 1921 in the face of a new phenomenon: coeducation. It was at once a social organization, a forum for community service, and an academic and support system for all of NYU’s female students. The League of Women flourished at NYU for over forty years.
