Women’s history month? In Oregon, women make history year-round. For our second annual feature honoring the extraordinary women of our state, we asked 10 local luminaries to pair off for conversations on what it means to be an Oregon woman today. They exchanged tough questions—on working families and women in power, equity in the arts and self-definition in society. What did we learn? That Oregon women are drawn to idealism, to disrupting the system, to defining ourselves—no matter what—and that regardless of where we go, we’re irresistibly called back to this land. It’s also clear that that we have a lot of work to do, on issues including civil rights, economic equity, and social opportunity. Fortunately, we can draw strength from the inspiring place we call home.
