You are accompanied on this journey with the respect and love of so many of us around the world whose lives you have enriched in profound ways. Your passion, commitment, generosity and wisdom as a person and as a feminist is inspirational and will endure. I celebrate and cherish all the ways you worked to make this crazy world a better place.
The contributions you made to AWID's work on religious fundamentalisms and women's rights are vast and deeply important; your dedication and passion are evident in every publication. Thank you for all you have given me, for all you have given AWID, and for all you have given those around you.
With compassion, peace and a celebration of your amazing life.
