OREGON EXPERIENCE

The Suffragists

  • Aired: 11/05/2012
  • 29:30
  • Rating: TV-G
For decades, Oregon women worked to get the vote with no success. Then, just after the turn of the twentieth century, a younger generation of women burst onto the scene. Together they won the vote for Oregon women, and went on to help implement social change that dramatically altered the lives of women and children, and improved working conditions for all Americans.
