WHAT FACULTY ARE SAYING ABOUT USING MS. IN THEIR CLASSROOM

“Ms. in the Classroom provides a timely and exciting resource for my classes. Students learn to identify a feminist viewpoint and to appreciate the ways research and theory in women’s studies inform policy and practice.”

- Bonnie Thornton-Dill, Chair Department of Women’s Studies, University of Maryland
& Chair, Ms. Committee of Scholars

“Ms. in the Classroom provides a vital opportunity for both introductory and upper-level women’s studies classes to engage timely, complex topics that directly affect women’s lives. Whether assigning articles for illustrations for current feminist activism worldwide, or as models for how to write about feminist issues, students benefit from reading Ms.”
- Jennifer Cognard-Black, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

"Ms. helps us to be righteously angry (instead of depressed) about what’s going on in the world, and encourages us to use that energy to move forward.”
- Beverly Guy-Sheftall, President, National Women’s Studies Association and Director, Women’s Research and Resource Center, Spelman College

“My students loved Ms. because they were able to learn about women from all walks of life. Using Ms. in the classroom was a life affirming and validating experience for my students.”
- Irasema Coronado, Associate Provost, University of Texas at El Paso

“Our students absolutely loved using Ms. We have a diverse student population in our Women’s Studies introductory course, with lots of men as well as women from a variety of majors, and they all really enjoyed the magazine. It’s hard to find a text that everybody seems to enjoy and relate to, and Ms. really did that for us.”
– Michelle McGibbney, Arizona State University

“Before class starts, I will invariably hear students chatting about something they’ve seen in Ms. They talk about what they read in Ms. and engage with it much more than they might with a more theoretical text, partly because it’s so approachable. Students really love it.”
– Natalie Wilson, California State University, San Marcos

 

WHAT STUDENTS THINK ABOUT MS. IN THE CLASSROOM

"Most engaging and interesting-to-read textbook I've had in a while!"
Oregon State University

"Having online access to the magazine, so I could access it anywhere was great. Also, not using paper seemed eco-friendly."
University of California, Los Angeles

"The articles I have read shed light on many important topics and issues that I otherwise may not have been aware of. After reading so many personal stories and seeing actual statistics for some issues, I have a greater understanding and appreciation of women's studies."

University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth
