The woman is Rachel Corrie, the American student who, in 2003, was crushed by an Israeli bulldozer while she was acting as a human shield in Gaza.

One of the ships in the flotilla to Gaza was named Rachel Corrie, after this lady. This ship was not part of the original raid on 31/5, but was boarded on 5/6 (since it got delayed due to a mechanical fault).

The ship was called Linda prior to being rechristened as Rachel Corrie. Israel refers to the ship as Linda.
