Women of the Tide: 125 Years of Women at The University of Alabama

Women have made a significant impression on The University of Alabama over the past 125 years, starting with the first female students.  Women have impacted every aspect of campus life from athletics to Greek Life to the military.  Significant increases of female students prompted the construction of the Women’s Campus to provide resources for the betterment of the female experience on campus.  Female students and members of the university’s faculty and staff have made outstanding contributions to the campus community, the state, and the nation.  The era of racial integration at UA was led by two women paving the way for acceptance and equality and the diverse and modern campus we know today.  Women of the Tide have graced the silver screen and written themselves into history.  Over 125 years, great advances have been made; however, there are still opportunities for progress as women continue pushing the boundaries and influencing the future.

This exhibit is part of the campus-wide celebration honoring women at UA over the last 125 years.
