In the Washington Post, President Debra Spar comments on the "increasingly rare and precious" experience that women's colleges offer:

"Women's colleges work. They continue to shape some of the best young minds in the country and to educate many of our most successful and ambitious women. And rather than isolating their students from the realities of a harsh male world, women's colleges give young women the skills and the confidence and the courage they need to go out in that world and claim it as their own," writes President Spar in the Washington Post, in response to a column reflecting on the relevance of single-sex education for young women today.
