"Only our failures marry." -- M. Carey Thomas
Is lesbianism a "four-year disease" at the Seven Sisters Colleges? Is there a contradiction between building strong leaders and the tendency to conform sexually/socially? A longitudinal study of sexuality at the Seven Sisters (annually from acceptance to 10 years after graduation) would document the (in)fluidity of sexuality in society. And it'd probably raise more questions than it'd answer.
50 years ago, well-educated people who wished to pair-bond usually had well-developed social networks to tap. These networks have been largely dismantled (there are still some matchmakers left) and replaced by the modern dating society. After four years of relative seclusion, are graduates of the un-coed colleges ready to compete in today's meatmarket?
