A prominent New York City feminist, writer and former Ms. magazine editor has been killed in a motorcycle crash. Mary Thom was 68.
Thom was a fixture of the women's movement. She wrote a book about its history and was the editor-in-chief of the Women's Media Center.
Feminist icon Gloria Steinem said in a statement that Thom was the movement's moral compass.
Thom is survived by her sister and other relatives. -- AP
