Vol. 3 No. 2 (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. Several cases investigate gender discrimination in the workplace and in places of higher learning, and document that change is often difficult to achieve in established institutions. Many of these cases explore challenges in making leadership decisions though case studies of specific women. This is showcased in a case study of Rachel Carson and her campaign for environmental regulation and in the case on Maria Pearson and her fight for the repatriation of Native American remains. Two of the cases in this issue explore women’s leadership during and following Hurricane Katrina.
