Antiguan Student Nominated For A Graduate Distinguished Scholar Award For An Outstanding Thesis


Sarah-Anne Gresham, an Antiguan  graduate from George Washington University in the US, has been nominated for a Graduate Distinguished Scholar Award which is awarded to two Master’s students who have excelled academically.

Gresham graduated on Saturday, at a virtual ceremony, with a Master of Arts in women’s, gender and sexuality studies.

Faculty members praised her for an outstanding thesis which focused on postcolonial literature and feminist historiography.

Gresham says she is relieved to have graduated, despite the challenges she face and now plans to pursue a PhD.

“I will be joining the PhD cohort in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies at Rutgers University in the fall,” she said.

Gresham is a keen activist in the twin island nation as co-founder of feminist organisation Intersect, which raises awareness about domestic violence, human trafficking, rape and sexual harassment. She has also been a staunch advocate for the legalisation of abortion.

  1. Conscious mind, with forward thinking! Congrats on her part!

    The last statement, as it speaks to, “a staunch advocate for the legislation of abortion;” would need explanation(s), especially when it comes to father’s right(s).
    Otherwise, I did mention some of her other concerns, as they pertains, to a growing segment, of the Nation, in partihicular bars both high end suites, and Wapping Lane sidewalk cafes…and, that’s human trafficking, sexual harassment, domestic violence etc.

    Kudos to her…..!

  2. Congratulations Sarah-Anne Gresham on your most laudable achevements to date. Though not mentioned, your educational foundation was laid right here in Antugua and of this we should all be proud. May your scholastic accomplishments serve as inspiration to each and every ambitious school/college student in Antigua and Barbuda.

  3. Notes From A Native Son Of the Rock! “Inequality can be done away with only by establishing a new society, where men and women will enjoy equal rights, resulting from an upheaval in the means of production and in all social relations. Thus, the status of women will improve only with the elimination of the system that exploits them.” – Capitaine Thomas Isidore Noël Sankara, The Upright Man, revolutionary, pan-Africanist theorist, and President of Burkina Faso from 1983 to 1987!

    Congrats to Ms. Sarah-Anne Gresham!

    Go Forward and Do Great Things on completing the Ph.D program!

    Never Give Up! Never Surrender!
