Obituary celebrating Le Guin's contributions as a community activist, a fighter for feminism, peace, freedom of speech, access to knowledge for everyone, and radical democracy in addition to her literary acclaim.
Ursula K. Le Guin died at her home in Portland, OR on Monday, January 22. Many obituaries have appropriately celebrated and acknowledged Le Guin as a literary artist--fiction writer, poet, and essayist. She was also a committed and generous community activist, a fighter for feminism, peace, freedom of speech, access to knowledge for everyone, and radical democracy.
This biography of Le Guin was written in 2003 by a Portland State University Women's Studies student as part of the "Portland Women City-Builders" project.
Ursula K. Le Guin - Writer, Citizen
In March 2003, Ursula K. Le Guin, world-renowned writer and poet, stands on the streets of downtown Portland, quietly passing out peace literature with other members of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. As war seems more and more inevitable, she is one person, standing with others; both the individual and the group helping to give voice by their presence to the possibility of peace.
