|Pamela Bridgewater - RIP|
Pam Bridgewater was all of these things and more. To me, she was a soulful human being. She cared about peace and justice. She cared about the success and potential impact of her colleagues and friends. She was gentle yet forceful when pushing for innovative change in the law or important revisions on book manuscripts. Pam fought for affirmative action, recognition of equal marriage rights, reproductive rights for women and particularly women of color, and urged all who knew her to get behind these equal rights.
At base, Pam loved well, lived well, and left a legacy of mentorship, equality, and fierce activism. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was loved by many. Pamela Bridgewater's passing leaves a void in the legal academy that will be difficult to fill.
A memorial service will be held on Sunday, February 1, 2015, at the Women's National Democratic Club in Washington, D.C.
