Left: A medal from the National American Woman Suffrage Association convention held in Portland in 1905 during the Lewis and Clark Exposition. The picture of Sacagawea and her infant Jean Baptiste are a representation since their true likenesses are unknown. The publication of suffragist Eva Emery Dye's book The Conquest: The True Story of Lewis and Clark helped popularize Sacagawea and white women of that time adopted Sacagawea as an iconic romantic ideal of womanhood representing women's leadership and contributions to society. Sacagawea's garments and her baby's cradle board reflect the style of Columbia River Plateau Indians more than her own people, the Shoshone. (Schlesinger Library, Harvard University)   Right: A ribbon from a 1900 banquet in Salem honoring national women’s rights activist Susan B. Anthony. (University of Oregon Library)
