Chinese Translation Filter: What is the best translation of, "a woman ahead of her time."

The dedication in my dissertation is to my Grandmother, and I want it to basically say, "To my wonderful Grandmother, (name), a woman who continues to be ahead of her time."
She only speaks Chinese, and I do not speak any. I got this translation from a Chinese professor friend of my parents', but I am afraid that it may miss important parts of the sentiment. Namely, the idea that she is a *woman* ahead of her time. Does this translation contain that exact sentiment? Do you have any better translations?
