by

The prominent feminist journalist, author and editor Mary Thom has died at the age of 68.

Thom was a early editor of Ms. Magazine, where she rose to the rank of executive editor. She wrote several books, including a history of Ms. Magazine, and was editor-in-chief of the Women’s Media Center, whose co-founder, Gloria Steinem, told The New York Times, "[Mary Thom] was a lodestone for the women’s movement nationally, and a center of trust, common sense and creativity." Thom died when her motorcycle crashed on Friday evening in Yonkers, just north of New York City.
