Antoinette Konikow (1869-1946) was a founder of the communist movement in the USA, and of the Trotskyist movement too (she led a group in Boston which was expelled before Cannon and Shachtman, and soon joined up with them).

She was also a medical doctor, and well-known as one of the chief campaigners in the USA for women's right to access to contraception and abortion.
