Professor Angela Morrison Writes Article for Hamilton and Griffin on Rights Blog

Angela Morrison is a Visiting Assistant Professor at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On June 30, her article, "NAME & SHAME - The Excommunication of Mormon Feminist Kate Kelly," was published on the Hamilton and Griffin on Rights blog.

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints excommunicated Kate Kelly, the founder of a movement called 'Ordain Women,' which has urged the Church through public advocacy and protests to reconsider its stance denying women the priesthood. I think Kelly’s strategy of naming and shaming the Church is important and I hope that she and her colleagues are successful in changing the Church’s policy regarding an all-male priesthood because allowing gender discrimination in a private, voluntary organization like the Church can have enormous consequences on society as a whole," she wrote in the article.

Professor Morrison graduated from the Boyd School of Law where she was the editor-in-chief of the Nevada Law Journal and was a student attorney in the Immigration Clinic. Professor Morrison teaches in the Immigration Clinic and Employment Discrimination.
