Reynolds Paper on Title IX Wins Top Undergrad Prize at SIUE Conference

Anna Reynolds, a senior double major in history and political science at Lindenwood University, recently had a paper selected for the SIUE Symposium on Women and Gender, which was to be held March 21 but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The paper, “Survivors, They’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” is about the history, shortcomings, and current implications of Title IX as it pertains to protections for sexual assault and harassment and how its current shortcomings can best be remedied.

The paper received the award for Best Undergraduate Essay. The reviewers lauded the paper as “outstanding work” for its “clear grasp of the history of the fight for Title IX” and for its basis in deep research.

“We could not be more proud of Anna’s accomplishments,” said Dr. Kathi Vosevich, dean of the School of Humanities. “She is an amazing student who regularly performs incredible work beyond the classroom as shown by her having arranged a successful panel discussion of second-generation holocaust survivors at the university. She represents the best of Lindenwood. Real experience. Real success.”
