Virginia ("Ginny") Wolf was a professor of Physical Education at the University of Idaho from 1964-1982. Ginny took an active role in addressing issues affecting women on campus, including chairing the U of I Women’s Caucus and helping to launch the campaign that brought about the establishment of a permanent Women’s Center. This award was created in 2002 in recognition of others, like Ginny, whose continuous dedication to activism for gender justice brings about lasting change.
