Have You Been Sashed Yet?

Have you been sashed yet? Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown was sashed last week at the Century of Action exhibit opening, and the sash has been spotted all over the Capitol building! Oregon Senators Diane Rosenbaum (D-Portland) and Ted Ferrioli (R-John Day, shown below being sashed) are both proud sash owners, as well as supporters of Senate Concurrent Resolution 204, which passed the Oregon Senate with a unanimous vote in favor of the resolution this past Tuesday.

Lets get Sashing!

In 1912 people from all corners of Oregon came together for one final push to get the suffrage amendment passed allowing women to vote in Oregon 8 years before the National Suffrage Amendment was passed in 1920. Looking back 100 years we can see all the changes that have been made in this state and across the country, but one of the most noticeable changes is the development of social media. 100 years ago Oregonians didn’t have blogs or Facebook, they didn’t Tweet or share photos of exciting events with their families and friends. But times have changed, and now we can use these channels to involve people across the state and around the country in this centennial.

Dr. Kimbely Jensen at the Liberty BellToday we celebrate this exciting centennial by taking a page out of the suffragist’s book. Through using one of their marketing tools, the Votes for Women sash, we will raise visibility across the state while engaging Oregonians in this historic moment.

Dr. Kimberly Jensen (pictured left) launches the project with a picture in her Oregon Centennial Sash at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia.

Beginning in February sashes will be sent to the six state universities, Eastern Oregon University, Oregon State University, Portland State University, Southern Oregon University, University of Oregon, and Western Oregon University. From there students across the state can photograph themselves and their friends in the sash and submit them to us.

Below are the myriad ways you can participate:

1. Like us on Facebook: Century of Action Century of Action: Oregon Women Vote and post your photo to our wall or tag us in your own photo status update

2. Tweet your photo with a mention of @centuryofaction with the hashtag #sashed

3. Join our Flickr Group, “Where in Oregon is the Centennial Sash” and add your photos there

Or if you aren’t into social media, email your photo to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and we will be sure to share it!

But you don’t have to be a student to “get sashed.” If you have a sash already, take a picture in it and send it along by email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or one of the above social media tools. Sashes are on sale now at the Century of Action website so you can take part. Sashes make perfect gifts and just in time to celebrate the upcoming Women’s History Month.

We want the sash to make it all the way around this fair state. To help you be a part of history, we want to share as many pictures as possible.

Help us “follow the sash” throughout this centennial year.
