Kelly Martin

Like many students who take "Women and Men in Society" to fulfill a general education requirement, Kelly was exposed to ideas she had never before considered. By the end of the course, she was hooked on gender and women’s studies. "I had always been interested in women's rights,” she says, “but I didn't realize how much I was interested until I took that class." Through her close ties with faculty, Kelly secured an internship as a legal advocate in the Domestic Violence Courthouse in Chicago. That experience helped her discover her life's work. "I’m getting experience in the field that I would like to work in after graduation—legal advocacy for women," she says.
