Orlowski 12L Wins President’s Commission Writing Award

Jeneanne Orlowski 12L won the Emory President’s Commission on the Status of Women student writing award and will be recognized Thursday, Feb. 23, at the Women and Gender Awards Night, which is sponsored by the commission and Emory’s Center for Women.

Her paper, “Beyond Gratification,” considers the First Amendment status of pornography from the perspective of “medicalization” of women’s sexuality. The writing competition is designed to highlight outstanding student scholarship and is open to undergraduate, graduate and professional school students, writing on women's issues, gender or feminist theory.

Orlowski earned her bachelor’s in history and sociology at the University of Michigan. She has worked as a field placement intern with the DeKalb County District Attorney’s office since August. Previously she worked as a domestic relations law clerk at the Cook County Office of the Public Guardian and also as a family law intern at Cabrini Green Legal Aid, both in Chicago.
