Kaili Joy Gray

Class of 2002

I am happy to report that I am in fact putting my degree in women's studies to good use in my professional career. I am associate editor at Daily Kos, where I cover politics on a daily basis, but I focus in particular on issues important to women, including writing a weekly series called "This week in the War on Women." I've also been involved in a number of fundraisers and actions through Daily Kos, including a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood and an action (going on right now) to pressure corporate sponsors to drop their support of Rush Limbaugh's radio show, in response to his "slut crusade" against Sandra Fluke.

It's such an honor and privilege to be able to use my education to reach more than a million readers every month about the issues that have mattered most to me and to feel that I am having a real impact on the political discourse about women, especially now, when women are so blatantly under attack.
