Actress, author, feminist and activist. Kimberley A. Johnson has worn a lot of hats, but the one she is most proud of is activist. In American Woman, she shares her journey and talks about two things that are dear to her heart and at the heart of our democracy: voting and women’s rights. So often we hear people say, “I want my country back!” But so often that is followed by “My vote doesn’t count.” In American Woman, Kimberley shows the impact voting – or not voting – can make. In a narrative the combines the history of the women’s rights movement, personal recollections and headlines of the day, American Woman speaks not only to women, but to all those who cherish our democracy. It is a clarion call to arms and the weapon is your vote.
