CELEBRITY DEATH TOLL UPDATE!



LIZ CLAIBORNE!

FAMOUS FOR: Quoth the New York Times, "She defied the male-dominated ranks of the fashion industry and started her own hugely successful company." In other words, she was tired of men being the only ones promoting unhealthy beauty standards that keep women concerned about their weight and appearance and fashion sense rather than their economic and social subservience under their male counterparts, and so she decided to become a part of the problem too. That's feminism in action, folks!

CAUSE OF DEATH: WWE-style murder/suicide pact with cancer.

AGE: 78
