Helen was a unique combination of public intellectual and expert scholar, feminist, and vibrant role model. Her writings and teachings presented an expansive, coherent worldview, telling truth to power. She paved the way for generations of women throughout the hemisphere to fulfill their potential. She was widely beloved for her generosity of spirit, and her loyalty as a friend -- it was my great privilege to enjoy her friendship since the 1970s. Like so many others, I will greatly miss her, but Helen remains present in our hearts and minds and inspires us to live up to her example.
