150 Years of Women at Berkeley


October 3, 2020, marks the 150th anniversary of the UC Regents’ unanimous approval of  a resolution by Regent Samuel F. Butterworth: “That young ladies be admitted into the University on equal terms in all respects with young men.” The first women were admitted to the university in 1872, and the first woman, Rosa Scrivner, graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Agriculture in 1874. Since that time, hundreds of thousands of women have graduated from UC Berkeley, and thousands of staff, faculty, and friends of the campus have made immeasurable contributions to our campus and beyond. 

In celebration, we are showcasing some of the dynamic women who are a part of the Division of Computing, Data Science, and Society.
