After receiving master's degree in English from the University of California at Irvine, Beth Sutton-Ramspeck began teaching the subject at the college level. She discusses how the sexism she encountered during her first teaching job led her to start identifying as a feminist. After earning her Ph.D. from Indiana University, she was hired in as an assistant professor in English at the Ohio State University-Lima campus. She discusses the impact feminism and the #MeToo movement have had on her education, career, and students, and she credits former OSU-Lima Dean Violet Meek for creating a more equitable workplace environment on that campus. In contrasting the Lima campus with the Columbus campus, Sutton-Ramspeck says that the resources of Ohio State in a smaller setting are "a perfect combination."
