Your book, The Church and the Second Sex,influenced my decision to get a Master of Divinity degree from a Jesuit School of Theology. I studied in a hopeful time when it seemed as though the church would become more welcoming to women. I was at your famous lecture at Memorial Church at Harvard where you invited all the men in attendance to leave. I was shocked and annoyed, but of course stayed, bidding so long to the man with whom I had gone. When you became a post-Christian feminist, you left me behind as I continued to struggle to change my Catholic Church. I didn't agree with
all of your perspectives and your essentialist viewpoints irritated and angered me. But you were an amazing and utterly brilliant woman whose pioneering work made it possible for me to become who I am. I give thanks that there was a Mary Daly in this world. May the light of your life and your work illuminate a way for us all as we work for justice. Rest in peace, bold sinner and daring pirate.
