Shula Koenig, Executive Director of the People's Movement for Human Rights Learning (PDHRE)
Charlotte, Roxanna, Anita:
I first met Rhonda many years ago just as I took my first steps at The UN and with women's NGO. I have learned a lot from her, her very specific articulation, and admired her generosity to share, teach and learn. I especially admired her relationship with and commitment to her father ..having had discussed with her with some joy the interconnectedness between childen and parents..
I loved her grey shock of hair.. and thought she was beautiful with shimmering eyes that never stopped saying: you are welcome.
For all her close friends it is indeed a great lose and to us from the far a memory of a person who contributed a great deal, more than most, to understanding the human rights of women and women as full human beings.
When you remember her contribution it lessens the pain of the loss.
