Unsung hero of Oregon history: Abigail Scott Duniway fought for women's right to vote throughout the Northwest, but over 5 elections male voters in her homestate, Oregon, defeated ballot initiatives to allow women to vote. Abigail's brother, Harvey Scott was editor of the Oregonian. He campaigned against women's rights and other progressive issues. Two years after Harvey's death, voters in Oregon approved a women's right to vote.  Portland honors Harvey Scott with a statue atop Mt Tabor, but Abigail has received few honors.  Music: Songs of the Suffragettes by Elizabeth Knight; Oh Dear by Gerri Gribi.
