M Kathy Rudy is a professor of women's studies at Duke University. Rudy's work is often interdisciplinary as she merges philosophy, theology, politics, feminism, and medical ethics. She is open about her homosexuality,[1] and is a radical social constructionist.

Rudy's current projects include Sweetness and Devotion — a personal and intellectual examination of medical alert dogs and diabetic alert dogs.

Rudy penned a controversial opinion piece that alleged that white culture hypocrisy was responsible for the prosecution of admitted animal abuser Michael Vick.[2]
