2 Minnesotans feature on the latest cover of 'Time' magazine

They're former Women's March participants turned politicians.

It's been almost a year since tens of thousands of (mostly) women took part in the 2017 Women's March in St. Paul – and two of those involved now feature on the latest cover of Time.

The famous magazine revealed the cover of its next issue on Thursday, featuring a collage of women who were involved in the global marches last year who are now running for public office.

Titled "The Avengers," the cover story is described with the clever deck: "First they marched, now they're running."

Among the faces on the front page is Minnesota House candidate Mindy Kimmel (directly above the "H" in the headline) and recently elected Minneapolis City Council member Andrea Jenkins (bottom row, third from right).

As her website describes, Kimmel was inspired to run for the House after taking part in the 2017 Women's, and is running as a Democrat in District 16B in her native city of New Ulm.

She's a licensed marriage and family therapist, having studied psychology at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, but asked herself, "What can I do next?" following last year's march.

Jenkins meanwhile is no stranger to the headlines, having created history in November when she and Phillipe Cunningham became the first ever transgender people to be elected to the city council of a major U.S. city.

They are among the record number of women who have run or are running for elected office in America in the wake of the 2016 presidential elections, Time notes.
