This lady is the REAL DEAL! Her CV is a mile long, listing books, articles and reviews published, involvement in symposiums and the like, and involvement in an entire range of other activities, from the arts to field work in Africa. She is an extremely well-rounded person who brings her world experiences to the classroom. What strikes me as most impressive about Prof. Hale is not her very extensive education or her publications (although those are most impressive), but rather her kind soul and depth of heart -- she truly cares about people and what is going on in the world. I took her Women in Social Movements Class and it was a real eye-opening experience. She is an excellent lecturer and gives assignments that require research and truly make one think. She is a feminist in the truest, most positive sense of the word and every woman should thank their own Divine Being there are ladies out there like Prof. Hale who have paved the way for the rest of us to have what liberties we do in this world. Highly recommended -- she is one of those professors you remember fondly the rest of your life.
