Board of Managers Profile: Davia Temin on #MeToo, Business, and Finding Her Path

Bayliss Wagner, The Phoenix, April 1, 2019

4 1 19 The Phoenix Board of Managers Profile

Board of Managers member Davia Temin '74 arrived at Swarthmore the year that the college first operated without some of the parietal rules it had held since its founding in 1864.

"It was a time of great change for women, for men, for the sexes. You know, right before my class, you couldn't have the door shut with a member of the opposite sex in your room.
