How has being a Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies (formerly Women's Studies) graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?

"Women’s Studies has informed my entire career. I entered Duke as a premed student planning to major in chemistry, and found Women’s Studies through an elective seminar. My interests in healthcare and my fascination with the placement of the female body within society, has led to my deviation from medicine and my entrance into Public Health. I now work for the protection of Black female."
