Why I am interested in Women's Studies?

It has always been an interest to me to study the process my gender went through to have all the rights and privileges we now have. Looking back in history, it’s crazy to think that I could have grown up in that kind of environment (my life would be completely different) without their hard work and dedication to being a woman. It is an important part of history that still is neglected to be taught about in regular history classes. The work of these women sociologists was not only a breakthrough in history and influential to the progression of women’s rights but also the progression of sociology for all mankind. It gives all women the inspiration and courage to stand up for themselves as well as empower women to study harder since we now can. There is a lot to be learned from these women and learning about their lives and work will lead to an even brighter future.
