From the forty-year struggle to gain the right to vote to the campaign for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, Oregon's political and civic landscape has been shaped by women. On October 7, historian Kimberly Jensen, political scientist Melody Rose, and activist and former Oregon legislator and both county and city commissioner Gretchen Kafoury will tell the stories of the political challenges Oregon women faced and the victories they won at a special edition of History Pub. Each month, the Oregon Historical Society, Holy Names Heritage Center, and Oregon Encyclopedia organize history talks at McMenamins Kennedy School in Northeast Portland, Cornelius Pass Roadhouse in Hillsdale, and Edgefield in Troutdale. Join us for beer and history!
This event is free and open to the public.
