Ashley BennettAshley Bennett, class of 2007, works as an Associate for Communications and Development for the international nongovernmental organization, CEDPA, in Washington, D.C. She says, "What I most appreciate about the Women's and Gender Studies curriculum is how diverse the options are. The ability to get a perspective from Africa to Asia and everywhere in between adds to the appeal of the minor."


Paul Winterscheidt Paul Winterscheidt, Police Officer for the City of Superior, says, "The Women's Studies courses I completed at the University of Wisconsin have benefitted me in my career. Gender issues are a big part of my job, and my experience at UW-Superior gave me a better appreciation for the issues women face in the criminal justice system."
