You can totally be a feminist who has insecurities. Feminism isn’t about pretending we all feel like Wonder Woman, it’s about being honest when we don’t, and having the conversation on why that is.
Your love for biology and animation in teaching led me to pursuing a degree in science. I still share random facts I learned in your class to friends who look at me like I’m crazy. Every single day of class was energetic and full of new information that has stuck with me for years. I owe my passion for science to your ability to teach better than any other professor I’ve ever had. So, thank you from all of us who have forever been influenced by your dedication to education and your hilarious, positive spirit. Keep fighting the good fight, Dr. Doolin. We’re rooting for you!
