Editor's Viewpoint: A thought for Inez

Inez McCormack has spent her life championing the underdog, particularly women in jobs which were underpaid and where they were treated unfairly.

She also made her name internationally through her human rights crusades. Anyone who crossed swords with her knew they were in for a real battle.

But that battle is nothing compared to the one she is now engaged in. She is very seriously ill with cancer in a hospice in her home town of Londonderry. We echo the words of Hillary Clinton who at the weekend sent her thoughts, best wishes and prayers to this inspiring woman and we are confident that thousands more throughout the province will do likewise.
