|Context||Woman suffrage movement|
|Purpose||To show the first woman to register to vote in the State of Oregon after the ratification of the suffrage amendment.|
Oregon's male voters rejected woman suffrage five times between 1884 and 1910. Even Harvey Scott, the brother of Abigail Scott Duniway, wrote editorials against the woman's vote in his newspaper, The Daily Oregonian. Oregon women finally won the right to vote in 1912. The photograph above records Duniway, the leader of the Oregon Equal Suffrage Association, receiving the honor of being the first woman to receive suffrage in the State of Oregon.
