Helen Safa was an intelligent and honest scholar who had the gift to touch her readers making them see. Her work will continue opening doors.

Dear Helen: You touched my life when I was a Chilean exile living in the SF Bay Area. I took every word from you as air for my breath, for my thirst for freedom. I took your teachings to Chile and founded Women and Gender Studies at the University of Chile when I return. Your wisdom and thirst for equality grows ever stronger everywhere and we are indebted to you for life...Kemy Oyarzun, University of Chile

Helen's work influenced me in so many ways. She paved the way for us. Even though she and I never met formally, I feel like I have lost a mentor and a colleague.

Helen touched the life of many scholars in the world. I was lucky to meet her as a student at the University of Florida. Helen was always inspiring and very supportive person. We will always remember her.

I never met Helen Safa, but read most of her fabulous contributions to a new feminist interpretation that associated gender to class. In LAP she wrote her first articles on Cuba and the Caribbean. I do sincerely lament this fact. She certainly left a rich legacy of progressive thought that inspire all those that struggle for justice and equality.

Thank you so much Helen for your mentoring of me and the tour of San Juan you gave me at one LASA conference. Your contributions to the literature on women and on the Caribbean will live on for decades if not more.
