Together with her husband, Harvey W. Richards, she traveled to the Soviet Union, central Asia, Mongolia, Cuba, and Africa. She helped him produce documentary films about the peace movement, the civil rights movement, the environment, and conditions of women and children. Footage from the films continues to be used in feature films, documentaries and television news programs in the United States and around the world.
Ms. Richards was a member of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, the Peninsula Peace and Justice Center, Women for Peace, the ACLU, and the Sierra Club.
She is survived by her sons, Jonathan Meigs of San Mateo and David Meigs of Soquel, and by stepsons, Steffen Richards of Berkeley and Paul Richards of Oakland.
