Knight Library Exhibit Highlights the History of Women’s Suffrage in Oregon
An exhibit showcasing the history of women’s political involvement in Oregon is on display in the cases located at the east and west entryway corridors in the Knight Library. The exhibit is entitled “From Suffrage to Citizenship: Empowering Oregon Women in the Twentieth Century and Beyond”. It was created to mark the centennial of women’s suffrage in Oregon.
The exhibit highlights key figures in Oregon's political history, including noted women’s rights advocate Abigail Scott Duniway, as well as Nancy Ryles and Nancie Fadeley. Other portions of the exhibit detail the importance of Oregon Women’s Political Caucus and the Oregon Women’s Political History Collection. The multimedia exhibit includes historical posters, photographs, ephemera, and artifacts.
The exhibit was created by UO manuscripts librarian Linda Long.
