Helen Stevenson Meyner (1928-1997), a Democrat from Phillipsburg,
represented the 13th District in Congress from 1974 to 1978. A committed feminist and wife
of former governor Robert Meyner, Meyner ran campaigns staffed largely by women and, while
in Congress, helped found the Congresswomens Caucus. The Caucus was devoted to
researching and promoting issues of particular concern to women. These two photographs
show Meyner campaigning and meeting New Jersey constituents.
