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

"Being a Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies graduate has helped me develop critical thinking, reading, research, and writing skills necessary to be an effective advocate for my clients. It has also shaped how I approach my clients with both empathy and compassion."
