This paper looks at the broad topic of the education of women in the United States. The paper focuses primarily on the history of the education of women in the US, the impact of all-women's colleges, and their benefits to women. The paper further discusses the benefits of coeducational schools and the effects of special programs designed to encourage women in math and sciences.

From the Paper:

"Women in American society are often considered to be well-educated and perhaps to be as well educated as their male counterparts, and any suggestions of inequality or unfairness in the education system is often disregarded as the result of feminist paranoia. However, education has historically been more of a privilege than a right for American women, and there has always been a struggle for women to receive the same levels and quality of education as men. Throughout the history of American education, this has taken the form of separate women's schools, co-educational schools, or special programs and initiatives to get women interested and committed to particular fields like science and technology."
