Katie Rose Guest Pryal, JD, PhD

Professional Background: 

I worked as a law and English professor 10+ years at UNC prior to leaving to work full-time as a novelist, journalist, lawyer, and legal consultant.

How has being a Women’s Studies/Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies graduate from Duke University help shape your professional success?

"Because I work, among other things, as a journalist writing analytical pieces of culture and politics, my training in WS (Women's Studies, now GSF) has been critical to my success; the intersectional approach to politics ensured that I learned how institutions and structures worked in U.S. and around the world, and I bring that knowledge to bear in my work every day."
