The first women were initiated into Tau Beta Pi in 1969. There is currently a three-part series of articles in The Bent magazine to commemorate the 50-year anniversary. Read the article from the Winter 2019 issue for details on the TBP Women’s Badge, a designation given by the Association beginning in 1936 to recognize engineering achievements by women.
In the upcoming Spring 2019 issue, an article details the 30-year struggle for women’s membership and the accompanying historical context. Fortunately, the lack of recognition and acceptance did not deter many of the early trailblazing female engineers, several of whom are profiled along with the aforementioned articles.
