Bruin Women Firsts

This March, UCLA recognizes the trailblazers and groundbreakers for Women’s History Month. We salute women who forged ahead in diverse disciplines—from economics to acting to athletics—and overcame challenges to become firsts in their chosen fields. For many, their journey began at UCLA, where they discovered the passion that became their life’s work. We celebrate these inspiring women who are creating pathways for future generations.
