I took an awesome women’s studies class at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1982. It was “Women in Cross-Cultural Perspectives” and was taught by Dr. Susan Millar, a cultural anthropologist who did work in Australia. It was my first anthropology course, and even though I graduated that semester with a BS in International Relations, I was hooked on feminist anthropology. The next year I went back to graduate school and got my MA/PhD in Anthropology, with an emphasis on Feminist Anthropology. I don’t remember the names of any of my other professors at UW-Madison, but hers I remember to this day – 31 years later. She opened my eyes to a whole new way of thinking and seeing….
