"I have been interested in, and passionate about, equality for as long as I can remember. As a Women’s Studies major I have had the opportunity to research such issues in depth through a social, economic, and political lens in my academic life. But I have also witnessed, as well as experienced, sexism and an overall lack of equality in my everyday life. By interning at the Women’s Fund of Rhode Island, I have been given the opportunity to help put forth beneficial and constructive change to positively impact the lives of women and girls in Rhode Island. The experience as well as knowledge that I have gained from this wonderful and dynamic group at the Women’s Fund will remain with me throughout my life both professionally and personally."
Next Courtney will be interning at the Feminist Majority in Washington D.C. this summer. She will then study abroad in both Germany and Bhutan. Follow her journey on her blog.
