Minor: Women’s Studies
Prior to an “eye-opening freshman year,” Buddy Scarborough ’09 had never thought about the lived experiences of women. Once he started reading about the concepts of gender and social construction, however, he says he couldn’t get enough.
“The more I learned and understood, the more I wanted to be active in breaking down these constructs,” he says. “I broke down my own perceptions and actions and saw how the things I do on daily basis perpetuate or disintegrate restrictive constructions of gender.”
