One hundred years ago, Oregon women won the right to vote. Oregon Experience is currently producing a half hour documentary to coincide with the centennial. The documentary will air on OPB-TV in the fall.
Meanwhile, the organization, a Century of Action: Oregon Women Vote!, is planning several exhibits around the state, the Oregon Historical Quarterly will publish a special edition, and a series of public programs and performances are in the works.
One of the first events this year will be an exhibit at the Multnomah County Library. Votes for Women! The Oregon Story runs from January 25 – March 6.
