Greenpeace co-founder Dorothy Stowe passed away on July 23, 2010 in Vancouver, Canada, at the age of 89. Rex Wyler remembers her.
Dorothy Anne Rabinowitz was born in Providence, Rhode Island on December 22, 1920, from Jewish immigrant parents from Russia and Galicia. She described her father Jacob as "idealistic and political. He cared about justice not only for Jewish people, but for everyone." Dorothy's mother, Rebecca Miller, taught Hebrew and inspired Dorothy to pursue an education.
