NAWCHE is a professional organization made up of very active women in a number of different arenas.
NAWCHE doesn't make everything that's been done against women right, but it makes room for these kinds of conversations.
It was well received, and during the closing session, it turned out that the founder of NAWCHE was retiring and looking for a new home institution (NAWCHE was started by Sharlene Hesse-Biber at Boston College in 1992).
He added, "Her work as founder and head of NAWCHE has brought credit to Boston College and done a tremendous service to Catholic higher education in the United States."
I want to be recognized for my life's work, but what I fear is a tendency to devalue feminist work." Although she is unsure how to proceed now, Hesse-Biber, approaching 50, feels she has to keep trying, if for no other reason, because nationally through NAWCHE and locally, at Boston College, she is a role model for other women.
