Event description
A Century of Women's Suffrage: A Look Back —Three Perspectives

About this Event

A century after Congress referred the Nineteenth Amendment to the States for ratification, the Pioneer Courthouse Historical Society’s annual meeting this year will feature a panel on the campaign for women’s suffrage with three distinguished thinkers and writers:

Ninth Circuit Judge Susan Graber will discuss the importance of this landmark development in civil rights in its historic and contemporary contexts.

Oregon novelist Jane Kirkpatrick will discuss both fictional and nonfictional depictions of Abigail Scott Duniway’s pioneering role in securing the vote for women in Oregon and elsewhere.

Portland State University Professor Tracy Prince will survey Oregon women of the Progressive Era, exploring the diversity of their backgrounds and the issues on which they worked.

Immediately following the panel discussion there will be a reception hosted by the Historical Society.

4:00 Arrival and gathering in the courtroom, Pioneer Courthouse
