Nora Ephron died of leukemia in June of 2012 at the age of 71.

Which was quite a surprise, to even some of her close friends.

An early demise is nearly always a tragedy, it was with Nora Ephron.

Confident and funny, sharp-witted; she could clearly see through the muck to find clever essence of any important and not-so-important situation.

Nora Ephron was a writer, born to a family of playwrighters and screenwriters. Born in NY, brought up in LA, she went back to NYC to be a journalist.

When Nora first started her career, she applied to write at Newsweek, who rejected her because she was a woman.

Nora was then a researcher at Newsweek for a while but quickly left to be a writer at the New York Post, just before there were a number of lawsuits against the magazine centering around gender discrimination in March of 1970.

Nora Ephron went on to be a clear feminist and thinker. She was able to label things so that they were suddenly transparent and obvious.

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim”
—1996 Wellesley College commencement address, Nora Ephron
