"My personal opinion is that you do not need to either wear ugly clothes that make you look like a man, nor do you need to dress in red and sit at the head of the table to be the leader. ... To me a leader can be wearing a ball gown or a potato sack and sit anywhere at the table. Being a leader comes from within."

-- Claudia A. Limbert, president, Mississippi University for Women, at the Commission for Women banquet. Limbert, former campus executive officer at Penn State DuBois and winner of the Commission for Women's Rosemary Schraer Mentor Award in 2000, spoke about the qualities that make a good leader.
