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."
