Activist and journalist Jill Johnston passed away this September. In January, her wife, Ingrid Nyeboe, will host a memorial service and reception to honor Johnston’s life and work.

Johnston made history by stating that women did not have to be with men sexually nor marry them; in fact, Johnston wrote, to do so would be to collaborate with the enemy, the same patriarchy that promoted and supported the oppression of all women.

According to Johnston, all women were inherently lesbian and just needed to access their lesbian selves by divesting themselves of men.
