Celebrating 150 years of Women at UC Berkeley
In 2020, the campus commemorated 150 years of women attending the University of California. In 1870, Berkeley was the only UC campus. As part of this recognition, GenEq celebrates trailblazing women students, faculty, and staff whose accomplishments and contributions made a difference for the campus community and beyond. We began our celebration in January 2020 by honoring the first woman to graduate from UC Berkeley; Rosa L. Scrivner. Below you will find our Instagram campaign of digital illustrations created by artists and student interns, Angela Li (Class of 2022), Caelesti Carranza (Class of 2021), Jimin Oh (Class of 2023), and Mihai Cipleu (Class of 2022). The GenEq 150W Celebration uplifts the history and contributions of these women who serve as an inspiration for generations to come.
