Kathy McMahon-Klosterman: Advocate for justice
ILR member and instructor Kathy McMahon Klosterman is an advocate for justice and encourages people to vote as a way to make their voices heard in a democracy. She became involved with ILR when she retired from Miami University, where she served as an Eminent Faculty Scholar for Community Engagement & Service, and Professor of Educational Psychology, with affiliations in Women’s, Disability, and Interdisciplinary Studies.
This fall, Kathy will be the instructor for Failure is Impossible: Women’s Suffrage. This 5-session course will feature films, readings, and guest speakers to explore the struggle of American women to gain the vote in 1920, and how suffragists’ work relates to today’s concerns about who votes.
Kathy enjoys the opportunity to meet new people through ILR and explore ideas of interest.
