2018 Board Member Linda Marshal, Ph.D.

Coming from a social work background, Linda earned a MSW and then a Ph.D. in Sociology. She has been a college professor for over 30 years, teaching courses in sociology, social work, and women's studies, currently at Texas Woman's University. Her husband, David, is also a professor at TWU, with a specialty in statistics and research design. They enjoy traveling, spending time with their children, and doting on their beloved little cat, Franny.

Her passion has long been the pursuit of social justice for all people, especially those marginalized and oppressed by dominant systems. For her, eliminating violence against women is the crucial element in this cause -- because being free of violence is the foundation of any other rights and freedoms that people can pursue.
