    HI, I am a student at Sacramento State University in Sacramento California, and I came across this article. I am currently studying sociology and political gender roles in American Politics. I would love to chat with Laura K. Nelson sometime. Be able to pick her brain about the comparative studies between men and women in gender specific roles, especially in Politics. Also the women’s rights movement throughout history. I am sure she is very busy, I wish her the best of luck!! If Laura ever reads this please let me know if you ever have around 10 minutes I could ask a few questions for my analysis on sociological issues facing American Women today. It would be online over chat or something. Anyways, if Laura does not want to, I totally understand. AN interview with a PHD level sociology major would be key for my presentation and paper. I am currently a History major and a Psychology major, (have my BA in History and an AA in Psychology). Anyways thank you for your time 🙂 Best Wishes 🙂 I will check back here periodically in the next week to see if I get a response. 🙂 🙂

    Also I am very interested in theological studies. Especially Christianity, and how the bible has treated women throughout history. Besides Christianity, I also study Muslim women as well. I am a huge feminist, I am a straight male, but I believe women not only deserve more respect, but has the human right to be treated equally, and I feel that religion has always put a huge stint in our sociological evolution between men and women. I will keep my religious beliefs private and I wont discuss them here. But I would love to ask Laura about her view on religion and the implications it has had on the female gender over the last 2000 years. Anyways thank you again for your time, have a wonderful evening. Congratulations on your PHD 🙂
