    I just wanted to point out that this page is talking about an award to honor and “support research and/or creative work on women and gender”, yet the only mentioning of who Jane Grant is as a person is through her husband. I can’t help but feel that is a little ironic. There is a grant supporting research on “nature of gender identities and inequalities”, yet the woman who the grant is named after is only mentioned through her husband? That’s odd to me. Is her only accomplishment who her husband is? If so, there are some deeper issues here than I realized. Take a look at:
