Mrs. Clinton described her four undergraduate years here in the late 1960s as among the most exhilarating and formative of her life, but added that when I came to Wellesley, I never in a million years could have imagined I would one day return as a candidate for the presidency of the United States. She emphasized that back then, women werent always taken seriously.

Mrs. Clinton recounted how she had been admitted to both Harvard and Yale Law Schools and was at a Harvard cocktail reception for prospective students when she was introduced to a famous law school professor.

One of my friends said, Professor So-and-So, this is Hillary Rodham, shes trying to decide between us and our nearest competitor, Mrs. Clinton said. And he looked down at me, and he said: Well, first, we dont have a nearest competitor. And secondly, we dont need any more women.

There were loud gasps from the audience.

So, Mrs. Clinton said when the gasps had died down, I decided to go to Yale.
