Known as "Mother of Equal Suffrage" and "the pioneer Woman Suffragist of the great Northwest" Abigail Scott Duniway worked for more than 40 years for the right to vote. Mentored by Susan B. Anthony, Duniway became a tireless lecturer, prolific writer, and editor of her newspaper The New Northwest, as she advocated for women's rights in a variety of ways. "Yours for Liberty," Duniway's signature line served as a constant reminder of her commitment to combating social injustice. (University of Oregon Library)
