Celebrating Ruth Proskauer Smith, a champion of reproductive rights

Ruth Proskauer Smith, a longtime women's and human rights activist, passed away last Friday at the impressive age of 102. Smith co-founded the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws, which later became the National Abortion Rights Action League and is today known as NARAL Pro-Choice America.

I wrote a full appreciation of Smith for Jewesses with Attitude, head over there to learn more about this remarkable woman.
