F Alenikoff headshot
Frances Alenikoff , 1920 - 2012
For decades and well into her 90s she turned age on its head, subverting its preconceptions, making it an adventure.
Rita Arditti, August 2009
Rita Arditti, 1934 - 2009
She went from a young Argentinian middle- to upper-class kid raised not to question women's roles in the home to leading crusader for women's issues (notably as they applied to the world of science)...
Bette Arnold with her Rolls
Bette Berman Arnold, 1921 - 2011
She always treated everyone the same regardless of race, gender, class, or age. She knew innately that these things were right. It took society a full generation or more to catch up with her.

Donna E. Arzt, 1954 - 2008
In her a genetic disposition to the appeal of tikkun olam was evident, in the course of a life devoted to deploying the law in behalf of progressive causes of special concern to the Jewish people.
Henriette Avram headshot
Henriette Avram, 1919 - 2006
She is remembered as a dynamic, inspiring leader, full of energy, writing and speaking internationally … making friends wherever she went.
