From Danny Weiss

Danny is Chief of Staff to Congressman George Miller (D-California)

Thanks for passing on this very sad news. I remember her fondly, and I had the privilege of working with her to write and introduce a House resolution in January 1993 to declare rape a crime against humanity and to encourage Bush to include Rape as one of the charges to be included in the international criminal court for crimes against humanity in the Bosnia conflict. Looking back through my files on that case I see that in 1996 the court did include rape as a crime against humanity and that 8 Serbs were indicted for mass rape in Bosnia. And Justice Goldstone was on the court and in favor of the charges.
