MONUMENTAL WOMEN SENIOR CAPSTONE WALKING TOURS SET
The students of the Monumental Women Senior Capstone will offer two
women's history walking tours beginning at 2 and 2:20 p.m., on March 13
and 15. The hour-and-a-half tours, along downtown sidewalks with a
gentle grade, will begin at the Walk of Heroines, located between the
Harrison Street Building and Peter W. Stott Community Field on the
Portland State University campus.
2012 is the centennial of Oregon women gaining the right to vote, and
March is Women’s History Month. The walking tours will focus on the
women, men, and organizations that worked to pass woman suffrage, or
those who opposed extending that right to women.
Pre-registration is required by March 3. To view and download a map of
the Portland State University campus, visit www.pdx.edu/campus-map . For
