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.

Honoured by: Ruth Crafts

My mother, Lillian Kehrmann Shapiro, who died in 1974 is my model of right living. She was always calm, compassionate, helpful, thoughtful, broad-minded, non judgemental, patient and a doer. She put up with me as a self centered teenager and young woman but never failed to show herself, by her actions, as alternative behavior – a woman of kindness.
