RIP Nora Ephron

27 Jun

A quick post to note the passing of a remarkable woman, writer, and humorist, Nora Ephron.

In addition to being the mastermind behind my very favorite movie, When Harry Met Sally, she was a brilliant essayist who managed to convey the issues and, more importantly, the humor that come with being a woman in a man’s world.  Some say she was a feminist, others criticized her brand of pseudo-feminism— one way or the other, she paved the way for other women who wanted to portray, write, and include neurotic, funny, complicated women in leading roles.  

          “Whatever you choose, however many roads you travel, I hope that you 
          choose not to be a lady.  I hope you will find some way to break the rules 
          and make a little trouble out there. And I also hope that you will choose to 
          make some of that trouble on behalf of women.”
