Memorializes Janis S. Bohan (1945–2021). Janis was a profound thinker, a prolific researcher, and an indefatigable activist, whose contributions influenced feminist and lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and other gender and sexual minorities (LGBTQ+) scholarship. During the 1990s, she published pivotal articles in Psychology of Women Quarterly which brought to psychologists’ attention critical advances and trenchant debates in feminist theory. During her long retirement, Janis engaged in many volunteer activities and extensive political activism, both locally and nationally. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved)
