The Dickinsonian Calls for a Ladies' Literary Society

A Call for a Ladies' Literary Society
Date: 
December, 1888

The December 1888 issue of the Dickinsonian calls for the consideration towards a Ladies' Literary Society. In the column, the Dickinsonian feels that because women are so limited to organizations they can join, namely both the Belles Lettres and Union Philosophical Societies are restricted to them, they should be allowed to form their own literary society. They acknowledge that some members of the college are probably still against the idea of co-education, but they call for them to recognize that women receive all the privileges of the institution as well. The article ends with a call for the women of the college to express their opinion to the Dickinsonian on this matter.
