RIP Mary Daly, feminist thinker and teacher, wild star

"There are and will be those who think I have gone overboard. Let them rest assured that this assessment is correct, probably beyond their wildest imagination, and that I will continue to do so." - Mary Daly, 1928-2010

More on this pioneering thinker here and here.

Mary Daly died this morning. Obituaries should be forthcoming in the next couple of days. Blaze on, Mary.

She went to the College of St. Rose here in Albany. Even long after her split with the church, she remained close to many of the CSJ's who influenced her life and was always positive about the school.

She had her Exodus moment and may she now be home.
