From Aye Nang, Burma

Women's League of Burma (WLB) Secretariat. The International Tribunal for Crimes Against Women of Burma was one of Rhonda's last political contributions.

Dear Liz and friends at Nobel Women's Initiative,

I am writing to give my deepest sympathies for the loss of Rhonda. She was clearly a pioneer for human rights - specifically women's human rights - and most recently for the women of Burma.

We recognize her for her strong contributions to our work for a peaceful, just Burma as she displayed great conviction and commitment in helping us convene the International Tribunal for Crimes Against Women of Burma. Her vast, knowledge and input proved to be invaluable during this complex endeavor and I feel so fortunate to have had this opportunity to work with her.

I know I can speak on behalf of all of the women with the WLB who came to know her through our joint efforts that her spirit and sense of caring will be dearly missed.

All the best,
Aye Nang
