Dr Olivarius profiled in Somervile Magazine

Dr Olivarius talks about her life’s journey, and why she filed her very first case of sex discrimination while studying at Yale:

“During her interview for the scholarship, she was asked, “Ann, you’re sueing Yale for sex discrimination. You may have good grounds for doing so. But how do we know that if you go to Oxford you won’t sue the Rhodes Trust for the same thing?” She replied, “You’re telling me that I shouldn’t use the law as a tool, that if there are illegalities and injustices at Oxford I should just look the other way? What kind of person would I be if I did that?””
