Meiners, Professor of Gender and Women’s Studies and Education at Northeastern Illinois University; Dr. Beth Richie, Director for the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago; Dr. Traci Schlesinger is an Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies of Sociology at DePaul University.
