The Feminist Scholarship is awarded annually to a person whose work has advanced feminist knowledge as it pertains to social work theory, research, practice, policy and education.

Mollie’s paper, The Role of Stigma in Feminist Self-Identification among Social Work Students, explores the relationship between feminist self-identification and the perception of feminism. She will be presenting her paper on Saturday, November 10 at the CSWE Annual Program Meeting in Washington, D.C. The presentation will discuss social work students’ perceptions of feminism, and the role played by stigma in feminist self-identification. Implications for social work education will also be explored.

“The School has co-sponsored the Women’s Networking Breakfast annually for the past several years. This year, our participation in the breakfast will have particularly special meaning, as we witness the presentation of your award, said Dean Raheim.”
