Ms. Wolfe sought AIDS treatment for women in the 1980’s and researched gender and racial bias on the SAT exam as head of a think tank. She pursued equality for women, particularly women of color, as a longtime leader of the Center for Women Policy Studies in Washington.

Ms. Wolfe’s work began in the thick of feminism’s second wave. She sought to make sure the movement included issues unique to women of color, particularly those who were poor or disabled.

She died on Nov. 30 in Rockville, Md. She was 74.
