Historian Shanna Stevenson, editor of Columbia: The Magazine of Northwest History, and Coordinator of the Washington Women's History Consortium, will trace the long history of how women in Washington Territory and State won and lost the vote during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries before claiming final victory in 1910. She will also briefly discuss the impact of the early vote for women in Washington on the state's history. Stevenson's lecture, which will be the first event in the Saint Martin's University Pacific Northwest Speaker Series, will take place at noon on Wednesday, March 27, in Harned Hall, room 110, on the Saint Martin's University Campus, 5000 Abbey Way SE. The free event is open to the public.
