The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, which placed women’s voting rights in the United States Constitution. Click on the Oregon 2020 tab above to engage with the resources we’ve gathered. These include research about Oregon’s Ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment on January 14, 1920, Oregon members of the National Woman’s Party and their protests for suffrage, what diverse Oregon women were doing in the period of ratification, and newspaper snapshots from around the state in January and August 1920, women born in Mexico and living in Oregon as listed in the 1920 census, and interviews with leaders, activists, and scholars on the importance of the vote, continuing barriers to voting, and social justice activism.
