Barbara Newell

Barbara Newell, Ph.D., an economist and ardent advocate for women's education and economic equity, served as president of Wellesley College from 1972 to 1980. During that time, she founded what would later become the Wellesley Centers for Women. In August 2018, Layli Maparyan, Ph.D., executive director of the Wellesley Centers for Women, interviewed Dr. Newell about her personal and professional life before Wellesley, what inspired her to start a gender-focused research center at Wellesley College, and what she hopes for the future of the Centers.

Dr. Newell discussed similar themes during a September 2018 event at Wellesley College, WCW in Retrospect: A Conversation with Barbara Newell.
