Photographs and text from Women of Armstrong display (2007.) From Janet Stone's text: For an institution where women have usually constituted a majority of the student body, a program in women's studies would seem to be a natural fit. Theresa Winterhalter of the Armstrong English faculty has played a major role in making such a program a reality. When she came to Armstrong in 1994, the college catalog included one history course in Women in American History and one anthropology course on the Anthropology of Sex and Gender. It was a very modest base on which to build. As a member of the Language and Literature department, Theresa was in a position to bring her insights about women and gender to the students in her core curriculum composition courses as well as advanced literature courses. She showed them how to raise questions about what they read and to look carefully for subtleties of word choice or images. She taught them how to see and hear what they were reading. In the fall of 2006, the Board of Regents granted approval for Armstrong's newest undergraduate degree in Gender and Women's Studies. Thank you, Theresa--and those who have gathered around you.
