Adrienne Rich, the internationally renown Santa Cruz
and essayist whose much-awarded work to fiercely advance feminism, nonviolence and gay rights inspired contemporaries and younger generations alike, died Tuesday. She was 82.
Rich died at home from complications from rheumatoid arthritis, said her son, Pablo Conrad. She had lived in Santa Cruz since the 1980s.
