Antler reflects on the award and her Brandeis career

She's a pillar of the American Studies Department, one of the founders of the Women's and Gender Studies Program, a playwright, an author, and a mom- and now she's the latest recipient of the Abram L. Sachar Medallion, the highest honor awarded by the Brandeis University National Women's Committee. In this BrandeisNOW profile, Antler shares her thoughts on the award and her multifaceted career.
