    As Kelly Brennan (‘08) remarked:

    "…my university education came from my women's studies courses simply because the interdisciplinary nature of the program is so diverse and because the subject matter is so eye opening. My life is forever changed from the things I have learned in my women's studies classes, which will shape the way I look at myself, my career choices, and my future plans. Women's studies led me to a summer job at a women's resource centre, which then directed me towards a career in social work. Women's studies has also made me strong enough to call myself a feminist."
