This Women’s History Month, we’re doing something different: sharing an article from our archives.

“Women in Temple History” originally appeared in the Winter 1985 issue of The Temple Review and celebrates the trailblazing women who have helped make Temple great, from Laura Carnell, Temple’s first dean, to Helen Hodgens, an early female graduate of the medical school.

We are sharing it again now, with bonus photographs from Temple’s archives.
