From Peggy Antrobus, Barbados

Dear Charlotte,

So sorry to hear this news. I saw Rhonda at the anniversary celebrations and it was great to catch up with her after all these years. She looked very frail, but I didn't realize that she was ill. I first met and got to know Rhonda in 1993/4 around issues related to the ICPD negotiations. Her commitment to women's human rights and passion for a broader agenda for social justice made her an indispensable colleague; her warmth made her a friend. Although I didn't work with her much after that, it was always lovely to see her, to experience her gentle smile and sharp mind.

She will clearly be a great loss in our on-going struggles and lives.

Thanks for bringing us together to share this loss.
