WHO IS SHE

A Community Project to honour women who have enriched our lives

The Ban Righ Centre supports mature women who are starting or returning to education at Queen’s University. In taking this significant step, these women found role models, advocates and inspiration in other women. Then, as they engage in their studies and in their activities beyond Queen’s with friends, family, peers and colleagues, these students effect continual and positive change, extending the reach of their mentors and the Ban Righ Centre. Through “Who Is She?” we honour women who make a difference.

For my mother, Alice Pearse, for valuing and embracing post-secondary education while she baked cinnamon bread, sewed skating costumes, and fixed the car’s fan belt. Her tremendous strength continues to inspire me.
