It is a great privilege to be honoring Myrna Raeder and to celebrate her impressive career, scholarship and personhood. How appropriate to bring together scholars and advocates who share and will carry on her passions. Thank you everyone at Southwestern Law School who worked so hard to imagine and realize this symposium, for gathering us together, and for giving us the opportunity to reflect on the many gifts and fierce challenges Myrna gave to each of us. There is no finer tribute we can give than to carry on her work – the development of ideas and the encouragement of women – in the academy, in the home and behind prison walls.
