She changed our lives... and changed the lives of women, who have no idea who she is, all over the United States. Every time a battered woman in California goes into a courthouse and does not face endless obstacles to the preparation and filing of a domestic violence restraining order, Norma is there. She is there when, on hundreds of occasions every single day all over this country, women, rich and poor, lawyers and ordinary people, face the judicial system in big and small events, and it is better for all these women than what their sisters had to endure just a dozen years ago. The work is not done, but she left every one of us and this flawed system better off. We remember her. And I sure wish she had stayed with us a little longer.
