Myriam Merlet was killed in the Haiti earthquake last week. Our heartfelt prayers go out to her family, friends and all of the lives she touched as a pioneer for women's rights in Haiti. Democracy NOW! reporter, Amy Goodman reports on her death in the episode below and Eve Ensler, American playwright of The Vagina Monolouges, speaks to Myriam's life, spirit and efforts. This touching report also includes a portion of Myriam speaking at V-Day in New Orleans in 2008. 

The bitterest tears shed over graves
are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
-Harriet Beecher Stowe
