"The classes I took in WS gave me the tools to apply a gender studies approach to my research in Hispanic literature and film, and that allowed me to attend conferences and publish my articles. I created an academic journal, Hispanet Journal, in order to investigate gender issues in the Hispanic postcolonial culture. This journal is accessible to the worldwide internet community, and requires no fees for publication."
