Some personal thoughts from Elizabeth Meckes about the evolution of her own feelings towards "women in mathematics"-oriented activities over the course of her career. That career was cut tragically short when Elizabeth passed away before Christmas 2020. Among many other things, Elizabeth was a supporter of early career researchers and the Women in Probability community. She is greatly missed.
