The Dartmouth

Inside this issue

Women, have you ever had to pee in Baker? Yeah, you have to run down three flights of stairs, sprint down dark, deserted hallways and you are barely able to open the dungeon-esque doors before you wet yourself. The location of restrooms in older buildings (read, pre-1972) on campus are architectural remainders of the 203 year legacy of male supremacy on this campus.

The first article that I ever read at college was Lucy Buford '00's History Thesis detailing the history of women at Dartmouth. Those who have read this piece for WGST 10 understand my immediate desire to transfer to Smith College. At least they can boast their football team is undefeated.

Dartmouth has come a long way since we became coeducational, but we still have a long way to go before women feel comfortable in all spaces on campus. All spaces within reason, I don't think many women want to gain access to men's rooms. You can keep your urinals.
