Associate Professor Emeritus


Marilyn Myerson, PhD Philosophy, has learned to take nothing for granted and to have fun. She retired from USF after 38 years of teaching, learning and kicking up her heels in Women's and Gender Studies. Marilyn was the first outside hire in W(GS)S, starting in 1973, when the department was just one year old. She was an administrator at various departmental and dean's levels, including a stint as W(GS)S Chair before her retirement as Emeritus faculty in 2010. She shepherded the Human Sexual Behavior class through its many incarnations, developed the original women's health classes,and taught feminist research methodology. She is currently in three writing groups, and happily involved with USF's Osher LifeLong Learning Institute, taking art and writing classes, and teaching "Imaginative Writing".
