Françoise Rubinsztein Friedlaender

SHARON — Françoise Rubinsztein Friedlaender, an early woman pioneer in business and science, died suddenly on October 10, 2022 in Sharon Hospital. She was 76 years old. Throughout her life, and against considerable adversity, she identified her own path to independence and fulfillment, with remarkable rationality and calmness.
