Historian presentation on women’s suffrage March 14
Historian Mary Rose is set to give a presentation on “160 years of women’s suffrage in Washington Territory” at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 14, at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site Visitor Center, 1501 E Evergreen Blvd., Vancouver. “Vancouver women set the stage for independence,” speaker Mary Rose said in the news release. Clark County had the largest number of women as permanent residents until the mid-1860s owning land claims in their own names. Two prominent examples were Esther Short, who built two hotels and donated the municipal dock that she built to the city of Vancouver, and Native American Betsy “White Wing” Ough, who founded Washougal with the donation land claims she co-owned with her husband. The presentation is free of charge.
