Perceptions of Change Project


Kay, Emma

Emma Kay is a PhD student in Sociology at Dalhousie University. Her research focuses on the women's movement, state funding, and the role of non-governmental organizations in politics.

Presently, Kay is working on a project that examines women's civic and political engagement in Atlantic Canada. This project is being completed using confidential data from Statistics Canada. Her Master's work looked at provincial funding for women's non-profit organizations in Nova Scotia, specifically the barriers these groups encounter attaining, and keeping, funding. Her doctoral work will build on this research and look at the National level.
