Leading the Way…
A conversation with Jane Margolis.

By Beth Cady and Ceal Craig, published January 2013 on Women in STEM Knowledge Center.

Dr. Jane Margolis’ personal and research interests focus on the ways in which society produces and then reproduces inequality and why some individuals do not receive the same opportunities as others. She arrived at her life’s work through a combination of personal and societal events: “I don’t think I ever would have ended up on this path, which has basically shaped my whole adult life, had it not been for my work experience, but also that interest in women. It was a part of the times, so I was very active in the women’s liberation movement and the civil rights movement, so it was the historical times that shaped my interest.”
