Simone Veil dies at age 89
Feminist and major french political figure, Simone Veil died yesterday. This holocost survivor is known to be one of the major french feminist writter (one of the six women to enter the Académie Française of litterature) and the driving force behind the fight for reproductive rights in France which was crowned by her managing to pass a law to make contraception easier in 1974 and abortion legal in 1975 despite strong opposition from Right wing parties. She championned women's right actively up to the very end.

Freedom is servitude to justice and intellectual honesty.
