A Letter from Harvard | 1961

On June 21, 1961, Phyllis Richman received the above letter (sans notation) from Harvard’s graduate program, asking how she intended to balance her “responsibilities” to her husband with her desired career in city planning.

52 years later, she responded.

Two years after Harvard's reply, Friedan's The Feminine Mystique called into question the very fabric of such assumptions and helped launch women into the quest for true equality.
