Women’s Studies courses brought together many passions for me, and eventually led to my now being in an M.Ed. program in order to teach women’s history at the college level.

Acceptance Speech for 1998 Kalikow Award

by Dr. Dot Diehl

Overwhelming and humbling to hear people sing your praises, and being singled out is daunting. Can’t duck the accolades, but I can share them. I’ve had a vision of late…of people at PSC with a concern for women linking hands in an every increasing line of people which soon becomes a circle — join hands with Theo, Stacey, Rita and Sally — the line circles the room and I add on those who should share in this recognition and celebration.

The line becomes a circle and it gets bigger and bigger. Into it come people from women’s studies, the women’s center, the women’s commission, from women in sport current and past, from my own department, from faculty and pats and os — more and more people who are dedicated to improving the status of women.

Then as my vision expands I see another circle forming outside the original – it includes all of you as you show support for the women on campus. Then it gets more frenetic, and we go out the door, leaving here and picking up people, dancing in a long line, picking up women and men, students and staff and administrators–circling the entire campus in praise and celebration — of women. WOW. Isn’t this fun? This is powerful, and all I want to say is, “Let’s do it.”
