Who was the bahamian Dame Doris Johnson?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Dame Doris Johnson, born 1921, and a teacher by profession, was the first Bahamian woman to be nominated to contest an election in the Bahamas. She was also the first woman to be appointed to the Senate, the first woman to be made a government Leader and President of the Senate, and the first woman to be made Minister of Government.

Like women such as Georgina Symonette, Mable Walker, Eugenia Lockhart, and Albertha Isaacs, among others, she was an early participant in the Women's Suffrage Movement of the 1950s in the Bahamas. This movement in the Bahamas had been founded by Mary Ingraham who became its first president.

Doris Johnson, with the help of the Progressive Liberal Party (which she joined in 1956), the Bahamian Federation of Labour and the National Council of Women which she helped to establish in 1958, mobilized the women suffrage movement into a fighting force. The vote for women was finally won in 1962. Males over 21 already had the franchise since 1959.

Johnson was nominated as a PLP candidate for the Eleuthra District in the 1962 elections, but withdrew from the race; but she contributed much to Bahamian social and political life until her death in 1983.
