Jillian Aurora is committed to research and scholarship about the history of women, why they were oppressed, and how to reclaim their rightful and equal power.
After spending the last decade producing courses, workshops, and support groups for women suffering the effects of indoctrinated patriarchy, Jillian was no longer satisfied with symptom management and decided to contribute in a more impactful way - through critically needed research.
Jillian is currently enrolled in the MSc history programme at The University of Edinburgh, where she is studying the medieval persecution of women due to religious extremism and gender hierarchy. She hopes to use this research to better understand our current gender norms and to equip women with critical knowledge of the past in order to make more consciously informed decisions about their future.
Believing so completely in this work, Jillian relocated her small family from her hometown of Boise, Idaho, to Edinburgh, Scotland, where she plans to complete both her MSc and her PhD. Jillian is currently in the process of submitting her PhD research proposal and plans to spend 3-6 years completing this endeavor.
The future of this research is bright! Jillian plans to use her historical scholarship to expand and deepen her coursework, available for women as they break free from patriarchal indoctrination. As the founder of The Unapologetic Empire, Inc., a worldwide support group for women, Jillian has the platform to continue educating women on a global scale.
