Marilyn French, born in Brooklyn, died Saturday in New York.
French, 79, was a writer and feminist whose debut novel "The Women's Room" propelled her into the public's eye as a representative of the modern feminist movement.
She once said, "Contempt for women is not an accident. It is not a byproduct of our culture, it is the heart...without it western culture would fall apart."
