Millett's work examines the complex and conflicting position of women in contemporary society by questioning stereotypes regarding career and family, dependence and freedom, reproductive health, and self-esteem as affected by the decision to reproduce.
Each concept determines a specific material choice, but she most often constructs three-dimensionally from familiar objects and cast forms made of metal or wax.
Millett received her BFA in 1990 in metalsmithing from Kent State University, Ohio; and an MFA in 1996 in sculpture from Arizona State University.
