Gender and Women’s Studies Visits White House

The White House Council on Women and Girls recently invited local women’s educational organizations, including UMBC’s gender and women’s studies department (GWST), to attend the White House spring garden tour. The tour was held on Sunday, April 10.

The faculty voted to invite this year’s recipients of the Joan S. Korenman Service Award, which is given by GWST each year to students who have provided outstanding service to GWST and the campus, to attend as their guests. The group toured the White House grounds, including the First Lady’s Kitchen Garden.

Pictured below are the students and faculty who attended the tour. The students, from left to right in the first picture, are Lisa Nicholson ’11, English; Autumn Reed, Ph.D. student in language, literacy and culture; Sabah Ghulamali ’11, gender and women’s studies; Anna Mallillin ’11, gender and women’s studies and sociology; and Alyssa Cartledge ’11, gender and women’s studies.
