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.

I hadn’t sung in public for over forty years. Then I found Georgette’s choir, Shout Sister – not only a place to make music but also a support group of wonderful and diverse women. Thank you, Georgette, for all of your service to the Kingston community and for giving a voice to so many women. Here is one of my favourite songs. “You got to sing like you don’t need the money, Love like you’ll never get hurt You got to dance like there’s nobody watching… Its’ gotta come from the heart, if you want it to work.”
