March is National Women's History Month, and the 2012 theme is Women's Education, Women's Empowerment. Although women now outnumber men in colleges nationwide as a very recent phenomenon, the same is not true for women in higher education in Utah.

Storee Powell explores this topic in UPR's Women's History Month series by talking to those who research this issue and to the women breaking through Utah's glass ceiling in higher education.
