Many, many things at Wellesley—buildings, scholarships, rooms, centers, labs, professorial positions—are named for the alumnae who gave money to support them. This is important. Many, many things in this world have been named for men; indeed you could be forgiven for believing that men basically named (or built) the world. You don’t have to believe that anymore.
