Mon. 3/21 1:30p: UNM was founded as a coed university in 1889.  After some research at UNM, a university communications representative with the help of the librarian archivist was able to dig up this photo showing the first female graduates.  The size of the graduate class was 80 and the women got their degrees in teaching. In honor of Women's History Month, you'll hear a few selections from the KUNM library that address women's rights, struggles and history. Tune in to hear that and, of course, some terrific freeform selections.
