Educator, suffragist, civic reformer, and internationalist, Johnson lectured and wrote on a wide range of issues including suffrage, the status of women, prohibition, aspects of democracy and government structure, international cooperation, and public speaking techniques. She served as president of the Cambridge (Mass.) Political Equality Association (1911-1915), and congressional chair of the Middlesex County and Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association (1914-1917), and was a member of the National Council of the National American Woman Suffrage Association (1915-1917).
