Renowned Feminist and Author Dies

Susan Sontag, a renowned feminist, author and playwright, died on Tuesday in a New York cancer hospital at the age of 71. She was one of the most esteemed writers of her generation, as well as a passionate human rights activist.
She was born on January 16, 1933 in New York, and was raised in Tuscon, Arizona and Los Angeles. She attended the University of Chicago at the early age of 16 and later went to Harvard and Oxford to study. She returned to New York when she was 26 and was an anti-war activist and cultural critic in the 60s. From then on she wrote various plays and novels, including In America, which won the U.S. National Book Award in 2000.
She continued to write essays this year, much on the war in Iraq and the failings of the Bush administration.
