Abstract

The study of women in higher education has been compartmentalized from the overall history of higher education. Educational historians continue to influence future discovery on the higher education of women by continuing to reinforce the master narrative of women in history. Acknowledging and confronting the master narrative within the history of higher education provides a useful endeavor by uncovering a deeper understanding of the history of the United States and educational systems. The challenge of continuing to be open to new perspectives of history will allow educators, policymakers and the general public to contribute to a better understanding about how education contributes in the journey for discovery.
