Our friend Amanda has found cartoon maps of most of our remaining states. We'll have them here over the next few days. First up: Oregon (and Washington)... in which, 100 years before Washington beat Oregon to legal pot Washington beat Oregon to Women's Suffrage. 45 down, 5 to go:
A 1912 editorial cartoon shows an Oregon man standing alone while men in the neighboring states are standing happily together with their wives. This cartoon was shown before movies and theater productions across the state. Oregon suffragists accused Oregon voting men of lagging behind neighboring states on woman suffrage. Idaho women gained the vote in 1896, followed by Washington in 1910 and California in 1911.
