Alumna Spotlight on Deirdre Dlugonski
"My background in GWS has changed the way I consume and view popular media, shaped the topics that I choose to study in my research, made me think critically about the daily messages I send to my young son, and perhaps most importantly, helped me to be more comfortable calling myself a feminist."
Alumna Spotlight on Erin Heath
"I believe that GWS provides people with a sense of perspective about their own gendered experiences as well as an understanding of the variety and complexity of other people’s experiences."
Alumna Spotlight on Mallory Edgar
"Learning more about the history of the health professions – particularly through a critical lens that considered issues of race, sex, gender, etc. – actually helped to solidify my interest in public health."
