Nora Ephron was one of my heroes. When I first saw When Harry Met Sally, I felt like someone finally understood my life – or what I wanted my life to be. When I found out that she passed away last night, I was shocked and crushed. I mean, this is a woman who never seemed to age. This is a woman who once said about breasts, “If I had them, I would have been a completely different person.” She just got it. As women, we’re all feminists in our own way and Nora Ephron was possibly the wittiest and best representation of feminism of all because she didn’t conform to the unfortunate stereotypes. She was beautiful, funny, smart, married twice, had children, but she also understood the plight of women and wanted to make a difference. She definitely put it best when she said women are the best-dressed oppressed group of them all. I just really adore her. Julie and Julia is one of my favorite films. To be honest, I spent two weeks just watching it over and over after it first came out on Netflix. Then they took it off and I was seriously depressed. Without Nora it never would’ve come to be. Her writing is true, self-deprecating, and funny and she will forever be remembered in our hearts.
