On November 1 & 2, OSU hosted a celebration honoring the 100th anniversery of woman suffrage in Oregon. The Women in Politics Roundtable assembled a 'Dream Team' of Oregon women who serve as political leaders.
The panel included:
- Delores Pigsley (Chair, Confederated Tribes of Siletz)
- Jackie Winters (Oregon State Senator);
- Barbara Roberts (former Oregon Governor and Secretary of State);
- Sara Gelser (Oregon State Representative);
- Julie Manning (Corvallis Mayor);
Video's of their roundtable discussion and many of the speakers from the Woman Citizen Symposium can be seen on our YouTube channel at: http://www.youtube.com/osushpr. There is also an amazing gallery of photographs taken by historian/photographer and SHPR prof. Mina Carson.
The "Woman Citizen: Past, Present, and Future" Symposium brought scholars, elected officials, activists, and community organizers to OSU to explore women's roles as citizens and women's political impact in the local, state, and national arenas. As OSU's commemoration of the centennial of woman suffrage in Oregon, the Symposium promoted education and discussion among students, staff, faculty, and community members and to encouraged civic and political engagement.
The Woman Citizen Symposium was made possible by the generous support of: the OSU Women's Giving Circle; the Horning Endowment in the Humanities; the Hundere Endowment in Religion and Culture; the School of History, Philosophy, and Religion; the School of Language, Culture, and Society; the School of Public Policy; the College of Liberal Arts; the Vice Provost for Student Affairs; OSU Libraries; OSU Center for the Humanities; the OSU President's Commission on the Status of Women; and the League of Women Voters of Corvallis.
