    I think it's time we get rid of the 'Women' label. No more 'KU Women's Hall of Fame' or whatever they have. Women are equals and to me it's time to quit separating their accomplishments. It's as if we still are saying: "Oh! Look at the little woman who did so well outside the kitchen!" That may have been appropriate 50 years ago, but it's no longer unusual to see successful women. Merge all of the awards and acknowledgements. Honor all successful individuals as one.
