Milkman describes her experience at Brown to ASAnet. "As an undergraduate at Brown, she created her own major, a sort of women’s studies degree before women’s studies was considered worthy of its own department. She valued the freedom that Brown allowed to do such a thing, a freedom she also found in her graduate work at the University of California-Berkeley. 'Both of them were places where you could define your own agenda,' she says."
