Presented by Jenna Barganski
Twenty-five women were
convicted of homicide in Oregon between 1854 and 1950. During these years the
majority faced all-male court and penal systems. As such, they were handled
differently in accordance with various social, cultural, and legislative shifts
relating to women's roles as citizens. Through an examination of contemporary
newspaper articles, inmate case files, and other Oregon State Penitentiary
records, this presentation will examine three distinct periods relating to
these shifts: 1854-1900, 1901-1935 and 1936-1950.
Barganski is the Museum Manager at Clackamas County Historical Society in
Oregon City. Prior to her position at CCHS she worked as a research assistant
for The Oregon Encyclopedia. In 2018, Jenna received her M.A. in History
and Public History from Portland State University. Her field of interest
includes Pacific Northwest history and women’s history.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
