We haven鈥檛 even made it a full month into the new year, and already, we have the type of devastating news out of Hollywood that seemed to plague much of 2016, with an iconic celebrity death. Mary Tyler Moore, a well-loved actress and women鈥檚 rights activist, has died at the age of 80. Her show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, was the very first to depict a single woman in the workforce, and it propelled the careers of not just Mary, but many of the most beloved actors of all time, including Betty White, who just celebrated her 95th birthday.

Though women still aren鈥檛 exactly 鈥渆qual鈥 (we鈥檙e struggling with potentially huge wage gaps depending on which state we live in, for instance), we still owe a lot to Mary Tyler Moore and her strong depiction of working women. We aren鈥檛 the only ones who will miss MTM and be grateful for all she鈥檚 done for women, either. Hollywood is mourning the loss of this wonderful women鈥檚 rights icon, and their tributes are beautiful.

Some simply stated their love and support for the icon鈥

鈥hile others focused on her achievements as a groundbreaking woman both on and off screen.

(Could you imagine? No pants on TV?)

Others offered pictorial tributes via Instagram鈥

Including one Miss Britney Spears, who wrote, 鈥淪o strong, so courageous and so beautiful. Rest in peace, Mary Tyler Moore.鈥

Diane Guerrero of Orange Is the New Black shared a sweet personal story, saying, 鈥淲hen I was a little girl, I would watch re-runs of Mary Tyler Moore and this image has been forever ingrained my memory. I thought, 鈥榟mm, maybe I too can throw my hat up in the air like that one day.鈥 She then included lyrics to the theme song, writing, 鈥楲ove is all around no need to waste it. You can never tell, why do鈥檛 you take it, you鈥檙e gonna make it after all鈥︹

Many news anchors recalled that it was this show, and Mary in particular, that gave them the dream to go into broadcasting (representation DOES matters).

Even Oprah thought of her as a hero!

We鈥檙e eternally grateful to Mary Tyler Moore for giving us the drive to be whatever we want to be.

RIP, Mary 鈥 you鈥檒l be missed!
