Women have been on the frontlines of every fight for social justice in our country.

This #InternationalWomensMonth I wanted to take a moment to recognize two of Jersey City’s most inspiring women, and the work that they do to make Jersey City a better place.
Pam Johnson has been a force for change and advocate for racial justice through her work w/ the @JCACM201. She pushed for a strong CCRB not only in JC but also in NJ. She is always ready to advocate for her city. Her commitment and passion is inspiring.
Asheenia Johnson is a committed advocate for all of JC. She dedicated years of public service @ City Hall & in Trenton. Her & Pam have led important community conversations through the JCACM. She ensures that everyone has a chance to be heard & puts in the work to make JC better

On Day 1, meet Ragnhild Kata (1873 - 1947), the woman who helped Helen Keller learn how to speak.

Ragnhild was the first deafblind person in Norway to receive proper schooling, eventually learning to speak and inspiring Helen Keller to do the same #DisabilityHistory
2: Annette Kellermann (1886-1975) wore leg braces & swam to build muscle.

She set multiple records in 1902 races, was the first woman to appear naked in a Hollywood film (A Daughter of the Gods, 1916) & launched a swimwear range after being told to 'cover up'. #WomenHistoryMonth
