Humanist Heroine Awards | Feminist Caucus
In 1982, the Feminist Caucus established its annual Humanist Heroine Award to recognize outstanding feminists for their significant contributions to the movement. The initial award was presented to Sonia Johnson. Some other Humanist Heroines over the years have included Tish Sommers, Christine Craft, Anne Nicole Gaylor, Patricia Maginnis, Fran Hosken, Cleo Kocol, Carolyn McDade, Sherry Matulis, and Sally Roesch Wagner.
