"...Emory reminds us that phrases like 'the first' and 'the earliest' often warrant further research..."
In 1917, Eléonore Raoul 20L enrolled in Emory’s School of Law and became the first woman to earn a degree from the University. This important event broke a barrier for women who would follow. Exploring the noted and notable milestones in the history of women at Emory reminds us that phrases like “the first” and “the earliest” often warrant further research. Many of the events occurred only after years of advocacy and activism by others.
