Andrea Dworkin

Age: 58

feminist writer whose often polemical works condemned pornography and violence against women. Her critics—some of them left-wing radicals like herself—accused her of condoning censorship in the interest of subverting pornography. Her books include Pornography: Men Possessing Women and Heartbreak: The Political Memoir of a Feminist Militant.

Died: Washington, D.C., April 9, 2005
