Ashley R. Bennett (born 1984/85) is an American Democratic Party politician from New Jersey, who was elected to a seat on the Atlantic County Board of Freeholders in 2017, defeating Republican incumbent John Carman, who had first been elected to office in 2014.

Although Bennett had never been involved with politics, she ran for the position after seeing remarks on Facebook by Carman about women participating in the 2017 Women's March.[1][2] In 2018, she appeared on the cover of Time magazine for the article "The Avengers: First they Marched, now they’re Running."[3] She spoke at the 2018 Women's March in New York City, which attracted more than 200,000 protestors.[4][5][6]
