Susannah Bartlow

Senior Project Manager


Susannah Bartlow, Ph.D. is a writer, educator, consultant, and administrator originally raised in Philadelphia and Reading, PA. From 2008-2015, she was the founding Director of the Women’s Center at Dickinson College and the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center at Marquette University, establishing responsive and lasting programs on sexual/domestic violence and campus discrimination and working in community for race and gender justice.

After a surprise exit in 2015 (described in Feminist Studies vol. 41 and in University and College Women’s and Gender Equity Centers), she transferred her practice from college campuses to community organizations--starting a new chapter serving directly as a case manager/trauma specialist with youth in Milwaukee. She has called Memphis home since 2017, when she founded the direct services dimension of Whole Child Strategies at the Family Safety Center.

Susannah has published on intersectionality and healing racism in feminism and is currently studying cultural somatics with Tada Hozumi and Dare Sohei. She has also taught courses in feminist spirituality, ecofeminism, literature, and women’s and gender studies. She is an alumna of the Oppression in the Soma/Practicing Justice somatic retreat, Yama Yoga (Milwaukee) teacher training, Bryn Mawr College, the University of Buffalo, and multiple mental health and anti-oppression trainings.
