About Kylie Dannatt

Kylie Dannatt graduated with a B.S. in Anthropology, and a B.S. in Gender and Sexuality Studies from the University of Central Missouri in 2023. There, through the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program, Kylie completed two research studies on the topic of reproductive technologies with respect to gender roles. Her first study sought to explore the gender gap in contraceptive options and the public's understanding of it, and her second study explored cis-heterosexual men’s acceptability to a potential hormonal-based contraceptive. 

In their doctoral research Kylie seeks to continue her commitment to research on the contraceptive burden, the gender gap in contraceptive availability, and more broadly, reproductive justice and health. Working among experts in their field, Kylie hopes to contribute to the advancement and acceleration of a male hormonal contraceptive option. It is her belief that in order for a male hormonal birth control option to reach the market, we must understand both how agreeable and accepting men are of said product, as well as the intricacies of female birth control and its impact on day to day life.
