“It is here, in places like Scripps College, where the fight for women’s equality must continue,” said chemistry professor Mart Hatcher-Skeers to a packed Garrison Theater September 6. “You are the agents of change. You are the ones who will show the world what bright, educated women are capable of doing. You are the ones with big dreams and even bigger potential.”
Part of academic convocation, Hatcher-Skeers’s keynote address “Ode to My Single Mother” received a standing ovation from the hundreds of students, faculty, and staff assembled, and kicked off the 2012-13 academic year with an unprecedented amount of energy.
