Webster Programs in D.C. Business Journal’s Book of Lists

Geraghty-Rathert, WILLOW Project in The Nation

Anne Geraghty-Rathert and The WILLOW Project are mentioned in an article from The Nation about incarcerated survivors of domestic violence.

“All of our clients have different stories with a very similar theme,” explained coalition member Anne Geraghty Rathert, an associate professor of Legal Studies and the director of the WILLOW (Women Initiate Legal Lifelines to Other Women) Project at Webster University. “No one—no family member, no police, no one in the justice system—helped them get out of situations where they were being controlled and brutalized.”

Rishe on Economics of Sports

Patrick Rishe, economics professor in the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology, was quoted in a Marketplace article on Jim Harbaugh’s move from the NFL to the University of Michigan and the motives behind the university competing with professional offers to bring the coach in.

Also, in his latest column for Forbes online, Rishe discussed what St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s part in a new stadium in Los Angeles mean for the future of the Rams in St. Louis.
