RIP Marsha Ellen Meidow

It is with great sorrow that I announce the passing of Marsha Ellen Meidow who spoke at the December 6 memorial screening. She died suddenly of a brain aneurysm on January 6, exactly one month after the memorial. She was only 34 years old. Here is the speech she made upon winning Calgary's Humanitarian of the Year Award in 2007:

Marsha’s sisters, Vagina Warriors, friends and loved ones are in the process of forming the Marsha Ellen Mediow Foundation. The Foundation will attempt to carry on Marsha’s tireless efforts towards a ‘World without violence toward women and girls.’
