Votes for Women exhibit at Multnomah County Library

Wednesday evening I attended the opening reception for the exhibit Votes for Women! The Oregon Story at the Multnomah County Library's Collins Gallery.

The exhibit is presented by Century of Action in celebration of 100 years of Oregon women's right to vote and advancing the understanding of women's citizenship in Oregon's history.

The exhibit draws on collections from many libraries, archives and museums in our area to represent the diversity of women's contributions to politics and civic life in Oregon. We are very proud to have one of our items, a political campaign card from Esther Pohl Lovejoy's papers, included in this exhibit.
