Emma Kay is a second-year PhD student in the Department of Sociology at Dalhousie University. She completed her MA at Dalhousie University, and her BA (Honours/Internship) at Mount Saint Vincent University. Her research is focused on women's activism and activist movements, government funding, and the role of non-governmental organizations in politics. Her Master's work examined the accessibility of provincial funding for women's organizations in Nova Scotia. Emma's doctoral work will build on this research and will look at the accessibility of all levels of government funding for all women's organizations with registered charitable status in Canada.
