On November 5, 1912, Oregon women won the right to vote. Tonight, Oregon Public Broadcasting is premiering The Suffragists, part of the Oregon Experience documentary series.
Women physicians - many of them alumnae of our medical school - were among the leaders in Oregon's suffrage movement. Notable among them is Dr. Esther Pohl Lovejoy, who will be represented in the documentary. Lovejoy's biographer, Kim Jensen, narrates two video extras on the documentary's Website.
