Mount Holyoke Female Seminary Opens Its Doors (1837)

The first of the Seven Sisters—traditionally female colleges often considered the equivalent to the historically male-dominated Ivy League—Mount Holyoke is one of the oldest women's colleges in the US.

I'm sure, that in light of all of the recent events and a growing paranoia of male/female contact or interaction, that all males should be excluded from female educational facilities and that all men have no honor and all they see is a sexual opportunity. It's got to be the only solution to the travesty of these offenses. All men are pigs! I remember hearing this when I was a kid. That was in the 60's.

We can always be bluffed by some media hype of some meaningless dimension! Were Americans, and were always right....aren't we? HAHAHAHA!!!!!!
