Shelley Papenfuse, disability rights activist and feminist. This brick is to honor her accomplishments as a leader in the disability rights movement, as a feminist seeking to ensure the rights of women (able and disabled), and my friend.
Shelley helped to create the cutting edge disability studies program in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Toledo. As a result, we shared the 2004 YWCA Milestones Award for our efforts in Education. It is my privilege to acknowledge Shelley as my colleague and as my friend.
