Leah Fessler writes, “At an intimate gathering of Harvard professors and students, Ashley Judd gripped a crystal award with both hands. “This is better than holding an Oscar,” she said.
Judd, an actor and social-justice activist, earned a mid-career master’s degree in public administration in 2010 from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. Today, she’s a global ambassador for the United Nations Population Fund and for Population Services International. She returned to the Kennedy School on May 30 to be honored as a Gender Equity Changemaker for her leadership in the #MeToo movement.”
