Rianka Roy: A Delegate on Behalf of Sociologists for Women in Society

Congratulations to our very own Ph.D. student, Rianka Roy, for serving as a delegate to a United Nations conference in March 2023!

“Roy ’21 MA, a Ph.D. candidate in sociology, served as one of 20 delegates representing the Sociologists for Women in Society (SWS), a nonprofit professional network of feminist sociologists and activists, at the 67th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) from March 6-17 at the U.N.”
