Vol. 3 No. 1 (2018): Women Leading Change: Case Studies on Women, Gender, and Feminism
Founded in the spring of 2013, Women Leading Change: Case Studies on Women, Gender, and Feminism is an online undergraduate journal featuring case studies authored by the Newcomb Scholars, an elite cohort of undergraduate women at Tulane University. Published periodically, CSWGF reflects research and work completed in the classroom then curated for journal publication.This particular issue examines a variety of topics central to the leadership of women. Health is central to several of these cases, including an analysis of sex education in the state of Louisiana, one woman’s fight to improve tumor profiling, and in an exploration of the topic of pre-term birth. Julia Butterfly Hill’s campaign to protect old growth forest is the focus of another one of the case studies in this issue. Workplace discrimination is highlighted in an analysis of workplace harassment in the technology industry and in a case study of discrimination in the U.S. Forest Service.
