Today's Los Angeles Times has a great article on the good news out of Cal Tech - a record number of women are enrolling as part of the Class of 2011!
According to preliminary figures, 87 women are entering a freshman
class of 206 students in September. That 37% share is Caltech's highest
since it began admitting undergraduate women in 1970, when pioneering
females comprised 14% of the entering class. (Female doctoral
candidates first arrived in the 1950s.)
