Elizabeth A. Johnson (born 1941) is a Christian feminist theologian. She is a professor at Fordham University, a Jesuit college in New York City. She is a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood.

Johnson's best-known work is She Who Is: The Mystery of God in Feminist Theological Discourse, for which she became the fourth recipient of the Grawemeyer Award. This book was the first extended attempt to integrate feminist categories such as experience and emancipation with classical Catholic theology. Some of her other works have won various awards, including the edited volume The Church Women Want (Gender Award from the Catholic Press Association).
