Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev) released the following statement on the passing of women’s rights icon Harriet Trudell.
“I’m deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Harriet Trudell. As a steadfast advocate for social change, she forged the path on women’s rights, civil rights and the fight against Yucca Mountain.

I’m grateful for the indelible mark she’s left on the Silver State.”
