In Celebration of Margaret 'Peg' Simmons (from Daily Nous)

"Peg, as I came to know her, is a proverbial force of nature guided by a commitment to the empowering of communities of women and men often occluded by the dynamics of colonialism, sexism, racism, and other forms of dehumanization. Her decades of work in professional philosophy exemplifies this value." -- Lewis Gordon
