On March 19, 2014, Cathleen Miller spoke in the University Scholar Series hosted by Interim Provost Andy Feinstein at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library. Dr. Miller spoke about her book, Champion of Choice: The Life and Legacy of Women's Advocate Nafis Sadik. Viewed as “one of the most powerful women in the world,” by the London Times, obstetrician Dr. Sadik took a post at the United Nations Population Fund in 1971. By 2000, the average birthrate had been cut in half because of Sadik’s new approach to provide females with the education and tools needed to control their own fertility. Cathleen Miller is an Associate Professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literature. Her biography of UN leader Nafis Sadik was named one of Booklist's Top 10 Biographies for 2013.
