Hillary Clinton Campaign Inspires College Course

Hillary Clinton is the subject of a special topics course at Kent State University - Hillary Clinton Case Study: Perspectives on Gender and Power.

Suzanne Holt, Ph.D., professor and director of Women’s Studies in Kent State’s College of Arts and Sciences recognized that there was a scholarly need for students to be able to contextualize gender and power as the first woman of a major party to became a candidate for president.  

“To me, this is an important example of what women’s studies can provide to our students — an inquiry into culture, discrimination, and hegemonic power seen through the analytic lens of feminist and gender scholarship,” said Molly Merryman, Ph.D., director of Kent State’s Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality.

The course has caught the attention of the national and local media. Learn more:
