Leigh Johnson (GWS 2005) Assistant Professor of English at Marymount University
"The GWS certificate at WKU helped me focus my interest and passion for women's studies, and especially Chicana feminism. It prepared me to coordinate the Gender and Society program at Marymount University. However, more importantly, my community based learning as part of the certificate program (poetry workshops for at-risk teenagers and the Women and Kids Learning Together camp), empowered me to integrate community based learning into my classes. My students in Gender Studies 101 and English 101 present the Clothesline Project to the campus community each year to raise awareness about violence against women."
