Shannon Sullivan '09, writes a column for the March 2006 Dickinsonian on the perceptions of the Women's Studies Major. Being a Women's Studies Major, Shannon discusses how many people feel the major is "completely unnecessary."  Since this major is still very "new" in terms of most college majors, people often forget how important this major is to understanding our culture. Shannon argues that people also forget "how gender has a huge role in creating our societal identities" and that by using our knowledge in this field we can learn "how we can change that role to form a better society."
