Who is Ima Shalom?

Ima Shalom is one of the few women mentioned by name in the Talmud. She was R. Eliezer's wife and Rabban Gamliel's sister, and there are some great traditions about her. She was wise and chutzpadik and made her voice heard at a time when it wasn't always so easy. Her name means "mother of peace."
