"I am using my Women's Studies minor every day at work as a specialized case manager for the refugee population in Salt Lake focusing on gender based violence and rape cases...It opened my eyes to many facets of feminism and helps me navigate the problems I face at work with a good theoretical foundation as well as sensitivity for the victims in trauma."  Annette Harris, WS alumna, April 2013


"The Women's Studies program allowed me to understand and embrace my femininity as I, not society, define it. I am continuing to share the principles and values of the program with the women and men around me today, helping other women reclaim and establish their own femininity." Catie Ashley, WS alumna, April 2013


"I'm currently working with high school students and applying for graduate programs in psychology, and my minor in Women's Studies has consistently strengthened both on paper and in application in a variety of settings and situations. The program has and continues to open up opportunities and insights I would have otherwise missed." Trace Lund, WS Alumnus, April 2012
