honored Mercer's women at a luncheon hosted by the Student Activities
Office March 21. The excellent meal was prepared by the Hospitality Club
In her comments Dr. Diane Campbell compared Mercer to Harvard, TCNJ and
other prominent colleges who now have women presidents. She reminded the
group about the great strides that have been made by women over the past
50 years. "The salary gap has closed a bit," she said. "We
used to wear pins that said 59 cents; now the figure is 77 cents."
(Women earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by men.) "We have to
make sure we share and help each other, and we have to make sure that
we strive to do our best," she said.
