BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Influential women in Indiana University’s history have a place of honor in a new exhibition in the Indiana Memorial Union.

The Herald-Times reports that portraits of 15 women are featured in “The Women of Indiana University” in the union’s East Lounge.

The women depicted include Nobel Prize winner Elinor Ostrom, first IU female trustee Nellie Showers Teter and Frances Marshall Eagleson, the first African-American woman to graduate from IU.

Provost Lauren Robel says the women portrayed in the exhibit made the most of their opportunities at IU and paved the way for future generations.
